More than 100 servicemen of the contract service of the Eastern Military District (VVO) were trained under the program of intensive and combined-arms training at the district training center near Khabarovsk. It is not the first year that not only men, but also women have taken part in the events.

The servicemen studied the features of tactical, fire, military medical, engineering and physical training, radiation, chemical and biological protection. More than two hundred hours were allotted to practical classes, after which the contract soldiers passed the control-complex tests.

Moreover, as part of the survival course, the trainees went through the “run-in” of the BMP, while throwing training anti-tank grenades, a fire-assault strip, learned how to cook food in the field in low temperatures, organize the protection and defense of the field camp, provide first aid in field conditions using standard medical equipment and improvised devices.

“It was exciting, of course I understood that the strength of the spirit was tempered during the courses, but it was not easy for me, sometimes it was scary, but after passing the element of“ running in ”the BMP I even liked it. I would like to thank the command of the training company for helping all of us and explaining them in an accessible way ”. – contract serviceman Ekaterina Pershikova shared her impressions.

The final exam of the course was a multi-kilometer march across rough terrain with control firing from standard weapons.
