The operational-strategic exercises of the collective forces of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), which ended in Tajikistan, were counter-terrorist in nature and were conducted taking into account the tactics of actions and weapons of international gangs. This was announced on Saturday by Lieutenant General Yevgeny Poplavsky, deputy commander of the Central Military District (CVO).

“The exercises were of a counter-terrorist nature and were aimed at eliminating possible threats in this direction,” Yevgeny Poplavsky said, summing up the results of the maneuvers. “We showed all their participants the experience of Russian units gained in the Syrian Arab Republic during the fight against terrorists.”

The general noted that the scenario of the exercise included episodes characteristic of the tactics of actions of international gangs, taking into account the weapons they have, primarily unmanned aerial vehicles, including handicraft ones, as well as the use of mined armored vehicles and suicide bombers.

According to him, during the exercise, the servicemen performed a number of practical tasks: conducting reconnaissance to prevent the penetration of bandit formations into the territory of Tajikistan, strengthening the state border, blocking and localizing bandit groups that broke through, as well as conducting a military operation to destroy all militants.
