A column of engineering equipment from the Western Military District (ZVO) marched more than 600 km to the settlement of Nizhnee Vologda Oblast, where the servicemen, using a set of pontoon-bridge parks, built a 40-meter bridge across the Kolp River. This provided transport accessibility for residents of 40 settlements, which was lost after the start of the repair of the main bridge.

The engineering detachment consists of 18 people and 10 pieces of equipment from a set of pontoon-bridge park based on a KamAZ vehicle.

The decision to allocate personnel and equipment to provide assistance to the local residents was made by the commander of the Western Military District, Colonel-General Alexander Zhuravlev, at the request of the Vologda Oblast administration.
