At the Selenga-2021 international Russian-Mongolian exercise, which is taking place at the Doytyn Am training ground in Mongolia, servicemen of the motorized rifle unit of the Eastern Military District and servicemen of the Mongolian armed forces destroyed sabotage and reconnaissance groups of a simulated enemy in hard-to-reach terrain by joint raids.

During the practical part of the exercise, Russian and Mongolian reconnaissance officers on MI-8AMTSh “Terminator” helicopters were delivered to the specified area, where they entered into battle with superior forces of the “enemy”, worked out the tasks of withdrawing their units and made a march to the assembly point. When performing combat training missions, special attention was paid to working out the coordination of actions of reconnaissance groups in unfamiliar terrain and camouflage.

It is worth noting that the landing is one of the most difficult elements of the counter-terrorist operation, which are practiced by the Russian-Mongolian group of forces during the Selenga-2021 exercise.

In addition, tank, motorized rifle, and artillery units carried out live fires, destroying targets imitating the armored vehicles of a conventional enemy at various ranges. In turn, the air defense units destroyed the unmanned aerial vehicles of the “enemy”.

This year, the Selenga-2021 international exercise involves servicemen of a motorized rifle unit of the combined-arms army of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Republic of Buryatia, and units of the Mongolian armed forces with a total of about 1.5 thousand personnel and more than 200 units of military equipment.

The Selenga exercise is aimed at combating international terrorism. During the exercise, the military personnel of the two countries, using various tactics of modern combat, perform the tasks of searching, blocking and destroying the armed formations of conditional terrorists.
