On the basis of the Daryal Mountain Training Center of the 58th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District (YuVO), with servicemen from reconnaissance units, comprehensive trainings were held to practice ambushes and destroy the reference points of a conditional enemy.

The servicemen organized ambushes, destroyed the columns of the conditional enemy. When performing tasks, the emphasis was placed on the interaction of scouts in the mountainous terrain and the distribution of forces and means of small groups.

After the destruction of the columns, the scouts had to make a 5-kilometer march to the stronghold of the conditional enemy and destroy the remaining members of the “gang” with a retreat to the point of further deployment.

The servicemen used survival and orientation skills; during the training process, the scouts were forbidden to use modern equipment for orientation and communication within the group. The tasks were carried out in radio silence.

“Today, together with the reconnaissance group, we worked out the elements of the ambush. The group fulfilled the assigned task perfectly. It is not often necessary to work in these weather conditions, but for a more accurate and precise development of the assigned tasks, even in such conditions, we do it every day, just like today, ”said the commander of the reconnaissance group, Andrei Petrov.

During the training period, the Daryal Mountain Training Center becomes a theater of operations for at least four battalion tactical exercises with live fire, moreover, with the use of rocket and cannon artillery and aviation. Three or four motorized rifle companies from the units and formations of the 58th combined-arms army of the Southern Military District are constantly honing their military skills at training places.
