In the Moscow Region, engineering units of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District (ZVO) took part in a special tactical exercise. The event is dedicated to the 321st anniversary of the founding of the engineering troops.

About 10 demolition teams carried out work to free the rivers from ice. More than 75 kg of TNT was used to blast the ice. Floating transporters, towing and motor boats and a pontoon-bridge park were used to guide the crossing. The crossing was organized for the transfer of automotive and tracked vehicles.
