Servicemen of the engineering and reconnaissance group of the motorized rifle unit of the army corps of the Eastern Military District (VVO) on Sakhalin practiced actions to repel an attack by a sabotage and reconnaissance group (DRG) during the “demining” of a section of the road.

When making a march, the specialists of the engineering unit had to check a section of the road, before the start of the movement of the main troops (forces), for the presence of explosive objects and mines, traps set by a conventional enemy.

At the moment of movement, a surprise attack was made on the convoy of military engineers by a squad of saboteurs who set up an ambush. By detonating the laid charge, the imaginary enemy put out of action the first vehicle of the military convoy. The servicemen immediately took up firing positions and organized a circular defense.

After the arrival of the reinforcement group, the servicemen went on the offensive, after which close combat ensued. As a result, military engineers managed to destroy the firing points of the saboteurs.

After repelling the attack by the saboteurs, the engineering and reconnaissance group continued to search for booby-traps, improvised explosive devices, as well as camouflaged anti-tank mines and stretch marks laid on the route of the convoy of military equipment and personnel.

Explosive devices and mines discovered by military engineers were demolished on the spot.

To create a situation as close as possible to a combat, imitation tools, smoke and blank cartridges were used.
