The rehearsal of the festive fireworks, which will take place on Victory Day in Ussuriysk, was carried out by non-standard salute crews of the artillery unit of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO) in Primorye, as well as representatives of a separate unit of the Airborne Forces. The training took place in preparation for the celebration of the 76th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War.

The artillerymen are practicing the order of actions when firing shots from guns and launches from firing installations. In total, there are about 70 servicemen in the salute units.

During the salutes, about 20 units of military equipment will be involved. Blank shots of 122 mm D-30 howitzers will provide sound accompaniment to salutes fired from 2A30 launchers.
