At the Molkino training ground in the Krasnodar Territory, the final stage of the international competition for field training among special-purpose groups “Green Path” is taking place.

Scouts from Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan on rough terrain in 35-degree heat conditions were tested at the mountain-sports complex and fulfilled special standards for physical training with throwing infantry shovels and knives at the target.

Practical shooting was carried out from a machine gun, a sniper rifle, a Kalashnikov assault rifle and a Makarov pistol at targets at a distance of 15 to 100 m with a change in firing position in conditions as close as possible to the actions of a special forces group in the rear of a conventional enemy.

The scouts-orderlies fulfilled the speed standards for self-help and helping a comrade in stopping bleeding and blood transfusion, as well as in carrying a wounded comrade to a safe distance.

At the stage of committing sabotage at the communications center of the imaginary enemy, the engineers of the special forces group had to make an electric explosive network, install mines and make an explosive device from improvised means and explosives. The peculiarity of the task was the random lot when choosing the executor of the operation. Thus, each soldier carefully prepared for this standard, which significantly increases the combat readiness of the entire group.

Coming out of the rear of the mock enemy, the groups had to make a 10 km march and cross the river in full gear and with weapons. At this stage, it was important to covertly cross the entire group through a water obstacle up to 4 m deep and maintain full combat readiness for further mission execution.

More than 500 servicemen from formations and military units of special purpose of four military districts, four fleets, the Airborne Forces, cadets of the Ryazan Higher Airborne Command School named after General of the Army V.F.Margelov, as well as a special forces group from the armed forces Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. There are 26 teams in total.
