Military police units destroyed a sabotage and reconnaissance group of a mock enemy when he attempted to attack the command post of the 6th Combined Arms Army of the Western Military District (ZVO). The combat training episode was played out during the joint strategic exercise of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus “West-2021” in the Nizhny Novgorod region.

Conditional saboteurs, in the role of which were the servicemen of the special forces of the Western Military District, attempted to infiltrate the command post of the 6th Combined Arms Army, mine its key objects, and disrupt the operation of the communications system. Having discovered the conditional violators, the security personnel of the control points, together with the military police units, immediately took action to block the sabotage and reconnaissance group.

To create a situation as close as possible to combat, imitation tools were used, including smoke bombs and blank ammunition.
