As part of the celebration of the 77th anniversary of the Petsamo-Kirkenes offensive operation of the troops of the Karelian Front and the forces of the Northern Fleet during the Great Patriotic War, an event was held in Pechenga to popularize and enhance the prestige of military service in the RF Armed Forces. In the course of it, an exhibition of modern weapons and military equipment of the coastal troops of the Northern Fleet was deployed. Motorized riflemen and marines demonstrated their fighting skills.

The crews of the “Arctic” T-80BVM tanks performed before the audience. They showed mastery of technique when playing tactical actions on the training ground, shooting at targets in motion, as well as jumping from a springboard. The tankers demonstrated the “waltz” of combat vehicles, hammered a nail with the barrel of a cannon and cut the melon with a knife attached to the barrel.

Methods of hand-to-hand combat and exercises with weapons were shown by scouts of a separate motorized rifle brigade. Combat crews of the Grad multiple launch rocket systems and the Tunguska anti-aircraft missile and cannon complex fired at a simulated enemy on the ground and in the air.

A concert brigade of the Song and Dance Ensemble of the Northern Fleet with military-patriotic compositions performed before the event participants.

The personnel of the coastal troops and spectators were greeted by the commander of the army corps, Lieutenant General Dmitry Kraev. He noted that in 2021, the military has achieved good results in a number of competitions of the International Army Games and announced the start of preparations for the next year’s army games.

For those wishing to conclude a contract for military service, an information and agitation mobile point worked during the entire event, whose employees consulted on the admission and passage of military service under a contract in the Armed Forces of Russia.
