The counter-terrorism unit of the joint Russian military base “Kant”, stationed in the Kyrgyz Republic, during the training repulsed an attack by a mock enemy at the checkpoint (checkpoint) of the base.

According to legend, a sabotage group of a conditional enemy attempted to seize a Russian military facility. On an alarm signal, along with the checkpoint, an anti-terrorist detachment moved under the cover of armored vehicles BTR-82. Russian soldiers repulsed the attack with crossfire, pushed the bandit formations away from the territory of the military base and captured members of the sabotage group who attempted to retreat.

About 50 servicemen and 10 units of military equipment were involved in the exercise.

The joint Russian air base Kant is part of the Collective Rapid Deployment Force and is involved in ensuring the security of the airspace of the CSTO states. It is armed with Su-25 attack aircraft and Mi-8 helicopters.
