Snipers of the motorized rifle formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, performed shooting exercises in the difficult climatic conditions of Transbaikalia at the Borzya-Novaya training ground as part of combat training.

During the event, the servicemen improved their shooting skills at targets simulating the manpower of a mock enemy at a distance of up to 1,000 meters at an ambient temperature of about minus 35 degrees.

Particular attention in the performance of fire missions was paid to the issues of reconnaissance of targets and determining the range to them, conducting aimed fire from SVD sniper rifles at distances from 300 to 1200 meters, in various terrain conditions in the daytime and at night.
