In the Voronezh region, at the Pogonovo and Krinitsa training grounds, servicemen of the Vislensky motorized rifle division of the combined arms army of the Western Military District began combat training for the upcoming Zapad 2021 large-scale joint strategic Russian-Belarusian exercise.
During the first week, firing of motorized rifle squads will take place, during which servicemen will practice a full list of actions in the offensive and defence, including work in pairs, passing mine-explosive obstacles and overcoming various obstacles by driver-mechanics.
