In St. Petersburg, on the basis of a separate helicopter regiment of the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District (ZVO), a training session was held to repel an attack by a conditional terrorist group on airfield facilities.

The main goal was to practice practical actions to suppress terrorist attacks on the territory of the airfield, as well as to organize interaction with the operational groups of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the territorial garrison.

According to the legend of the training, a terrorist group of 10 people tried to hijack an Mi-8 transport helicopter, and also attacked a checkpoint and a fuel and lubricants warehouse. To repel the attack, an operational group of a separate MTO ZVO brigade, as well as a division of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, arrived at the scene.

The servicemen of the operational group, together with the reinforcement groups, took immediate measures to repel attacks and block the actions of a simulated enemy.

During the training, imitation means were used, including smoke bombs, explosives and blank ammunition for small arms.
