A member of the Russian national team during the “Warrior of Peace” competition of the International Army Games 2021 set a competition record in the completed final stage of “Sniper” fire training.

Among men, the record result, 139 points out of 150 possible, was shown by cadet Nikolai Lagutenko, who is participating in the competition for the first time. In 2020, the record was set with 134 points. Nikolai is studying at the 4th year of the Moscow Higher Combined Arms Command School. The record holder comes from the Bryansk region.

In accordance with the regulations on the competition in the “Sniper” stage, the participants had to compete in shooting from the AK-74 Kalashnikov assault rifle. The fire was fired on a chest figure with circles from a distance of 100 meters from a prone position, standing and from a knee. Firing from each position was given 50, 60 and 70 seconds, respectively. The interval between each position was 15 seconds.

The winner was determined by the amount of points knocked out.

In the team event, the first place at the “Sniper” stage, held at the Ijevan mountain range of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia, was won by the team of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

In the near future, the panel of judges will determine the best in the team and individual competition for the entire “Warrior of Peace” competition. The results of the competition will be communicated to the participants on September 1 during the closing ceremony of the competition, awarding and rewarding the winners.

During the existence of the “Warrior of Peace” competition, it was held on the territory of the Russian Federation, the Republics of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia. In 2018, representatives of the armed forces of Greece and Iran took part in the competition for the first time, and in 2021 – Qatar.
