In the Krasnodar Territory, at the Molkino training ground, in early July, the international stage of the Green Path competition for field training of servicemen of special forces from Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan will take place.

For ten days, participants will compete in shooting from a sniper rifle, grenade launcher, machine gun; in throwing knives, grenades, infantry shovels; in overcoming mine-explosive obstacles, contaminated area, water barriers. Servicemen will fulfill the standards for physical, medical, engineering training, and military topography. The main endurance test will be a 30 km march after landing from a helicopter.

Also, during the day, each scout will have to “survive” in the rear of a conditional enemy without special equipment, secretly arranging an overnight stay, a position for observation, independently providing himself with water and provisions, using only improvised means in the wilderness of mountainous terrain.

At the final stage of the competition, the scouts will act not only individually, but also as part of mobile units, which will have to conduct reconnaissance in force, as well as repel the attack of sabotage groups of a conditional enemy.

The competition will involve 30 teams – more than 500 special forces from various countries.
