More than 300 units of the Western Military District (ZVO) claim to be given the honorary name “shock”. The growth dynamics of the divisions applying for the honorary title in comparison with 2020 increased by 1.5 times.

Companies and battalions of motorized rifle, tank and artillery units of combined-arms armies, marines of the Baltic Fleet, as well as special forces units that retained the right to claim the title of “shock” in the winter period of training will be involved in the checks.

In the course of the commission’s work, servicemen will pass exams in tactical training, driving combat vehicles, firing small arms, as well as weapons from infantry fighting vehicles and tanks on the move at stationary and moving targets. In addition, each unit will be tested in the main subjects of combat training, including engineering, medical, and protection against weapons of mass destruction.

At the end of 2020, more than 180 divisions and military units of the Western Military District deserved to bear this honorary title.

Based on the results of the check of the units submitted for assigning the name “shock”, the commission of the Russian Ministry of Defense will make a decision on the compliance of the units with the established requirements.
