“These trainings are held at least once a week, we achieve the highest quality work on this issue. The servicemen are trying to quickly navigate the terrain, quickly select firing positions, improve rapid movement and every shot is right on target, ”said the platoon commander, senior lieutenant Ivanov Nikolai.
