At the Burduny training ground in the Republic of Buryatia, sniper units from the Eastern Military District conduct special classes under the guidance of experienced instructors who have undergone special training at the training center of the Ministry of Defense.

When training snipers, the latest methods of the All-Russian sports public organization “Federation of Practical Shooting of Russia” are used. The essence of these techniques is to create a constantly changing target environment in shooting lessons, difficult conditions for performing exercises, as well as the introduction of competitive elements into the learning process.

During the special course, servicemen will have to study the technique of covert movement, taking into account the terrain, conducting reconnaissance of the enemy, classifying targets by importance, determining the distance to them using day and night observation and aiming devices.

With the help of ballistic calculators, snipers will learn how to prepare data for shooting and hit targets with sniper rifles in mountainous and wooded areas at ranges of up to 1.2 thousand meters.

During the period of field training with snipers, it is planned to conduct more than 70 fire drills with practical exercises of training and control firing.
