Today, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu heard the commander of the Southern Military District Alexander Dvornikov about the operational situation in the region and the implementation of combat training plans.

The commander, in particular, reported to the head of the military department that in 2021 the district received from industry over half a thousand units of military equipment, as well as various types of weapons.

According to Alexander Dvornikov, by the end of the year the share of modern types of weapons and equipment in the troops of the Southern Military District will be 71%.

On April 20, Sergei Shoigu said that the combat capabilities of the Southern Military District are increasing due to the attempts of the North Atlantic Alliance to oppose the normalization of the situation in a number of countries of the Caucasus and the Middle East.

“The unstable state of affairs is observed in a number of countries in the Middle East region and the Caucasus. The alliance’s attempts to counteract its normalization are forcing us to take symmetrical measures of strategic containment and build up the combat capabilities of the troops of the Southern Military District, ”Sergei Shoigu said at a meeting of the board of the Russian Defense Ministry.

In particular, according to the minister, “as part of improving the combat strength, 54 organizational measures were carried out last year, the main of which was the formation of another motorized rifle division.”

“At the same time, continuous re-equipment of the district is underway. In 2020, the troops received more than three thousand two hundred units of modern weapons and military equipment, and their share in military units and formations amounted to 70 percent, ”the head of the military department said.

He noted that in the preparation of military command and control bodies, new command and control systems are being applied, and the quality of practical measures has increased.
