In the Smolensk region, at the Dorogobuzh training ground, during a combat readiness check, servicemen of the communications units of the Elninsk division of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO) provided the troops with a protected communications system.

On signal, the signalmen moved into the positional area, having worked out countering sabotage and reconnaissance groups and working out the route in the conditions of the use of weapons of mass destruction.

At the training ground, the servicemen quickly combined formations and military units located at a distance of over 500 km into a single secure communications network. Signalers provided stable satellite, radio relay and radio communications, laid backup wire communication lines, and also organized online video conferencing.

To accomplish the assigned tasks, the servicemen used the R-142 command and staff vehicles, the R-419L1 and R-416GM digital radio relay stations and the R-166 medium-power radio station.

In total, more than 300 signalmen of the Yelninsk motorized rifle division of the combined arms army of the Western Military District took part in the combat training event.
