Servicemen of the special forces unit stationed in the Pskov region held a large-scale complex tactical and special training session on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the special forces units of the Russian Armed Forces.

During the lesson, the servicemen worked out the procedure for carrying out special events in urban conditions, as well as in areas with different relief and landscape. At different training points, exercises were performed to penetrate the building using climbing equipment, overcome natural and artificial obstacles both alone and as part of a group, worked out standards for the manufacture and installation of charges, providing medical assistance to the wounded and evacuating them from the battlefield …

Snipers conducted a kind of sniper duel, when each of the two shooters is assigned a section of terrain on which he must, in a short time, equip his position and shooting sector. At this stage, none of the shooters observes the actions of the “enemy”. At the signal of the head of the lesson, the obstacle covering one sniper from another is removed and the duel begins. The winner is the one who discovers the opponent’s position earlier.

The day of special forces and formations is celebrated in the Armed Forces of Russia on October 24. It was on this day, October 24, 1950, that Marshal of the Soviet Union Alexander Vasilevsky signed a directive on the creation of special forces.
