One of the most difficult stages took place at the Molkino training ground in the Krasnodar Territory within the framework of the field training competition among special-purpose groups “Green Path” – crossing the river in full gear and with weapons.

According to the concept of the competition, the opposite bank of the river was captured by the enemy. Having crossed the water barrier, the reconnaissance patrol revealed the position of the conditional enemy, the location of his fire weapons, engineering structures, the state of the water barrier, the nature of the bottom and shores.

The width of the water obstacle is about 40 m, the depth is 4 m. The task of the servicemen is to get over to the opposite bank without any auxiliary means.

Competitions in the Krasnodar Territory will last until July 13. Participants will compete in the actions of reconnaissance groups when moving over long distances, when landing a group from a Mi-8AMTSh helicopter, when overcoming water obstacles, when performing special tasks, when firing a sniper rifle, machine gun, grenade launcher, machine gun and pistol, when withdrawing a reconnaissance group behind enemy lines. At the final stage of the competition, the scouts will work out an ambush and make a 10 km march.
