According to the plan of the exercise, the intelligence noticed a detachment of an illegal armed formation moving along a mountain serpentine towards the village.

The motorized riflemen thwarted the plans of the “militants” by delivering a surprise blow from the flank. After hitting the lead vehicle, the crews of the modernized armored personnel carriers BTR-82 destroyed the detachment with fire from 30-mm automatic cannons on the outskirts of the city. The motorized riflemen were supported by sniper units armed with 12.7-mm Kord-M sniper rifles.

Units of the 201 military base regularly take part in exercises of various levels, including international ones. In August of this year, about 1.8 thousand servicemen of the Russian formation took part in a joint exercise of the military contingents of Russia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. In October, the servicemen of the military base will take part in three joint exercises with the military contingents of the member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, which will also be held on the territory of Tajikistan.
