In the Voronezh Region, servicemen of a special-purpose company of the combined-arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO) practiced actions to capture representatives of the commanding staff of a simulated enemy.

During the training event, a special forces group determined the route of a column of lightly armored vehicles and identified the whereabouts of the leader of the conditional bandit formation. Then the servicemen placed mines on the path of the mock enemy, and the convoy was stopped by detonating them.

After that, the special forces, blocking the approach of the main forces of the mock enemy with fire from the AGS-17 “Flame” automatic easel grenade launchers, destroyed the guards of the leader of the mock bandit formation and captured him. When retreating, the servicemen mined the likely paths of pursuit.

More than 60 servicemen of the special-purpose unit took part in the combat training event, about 20 units of military equipment were involved.
