Engineer-sapper units of the motorized rifle unit of the 49th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District (YuVO) during bilateral exercises will work out new methods of finding and clearing booby traps at the Nikolo-Aleksandrovsky training ground in the Stavropol Territory.

During the main phase of the exercise, which will take place at night, sappers will make passes through mixed minefields, including with the use of demining installations, to ensure the exit of tank and motorized rifle units.
