In the mountains of the Western Sayan in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, the second stage of the joint tactical and special exercises of the special forces of the Central Military District (CVD) and the Republic of Uzbekistan has ended.

According to the terms of the training stage, the servicemen had to secretly advance to the designated area, organize a base camp in the rear of the simulated enemy and prepare for sabotage and reconnaissance actions. To remain unnoticed, the servicemen used the flora and fauna of the mountain Siberian taiga for food, search for sources and creation of water reserves, and its disinfection. The servicemen mastered the capture of wild animals and birds with the help of traps and snares, learned about the main types of edible plants, reptiles and insects.

At the end of the second stage, the servicemen jointly worked out the procedure for actions in the base camp in case of its detection by the enemy, provided cover for the withdrawal of special-purpose groups and assembled at the designated point.

Joint tactical and special exercises of the special forces of the Central Military District and the Republic of Uzbekistan are conducted on the basis of the Ergaki Military-Sports Training Center in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. The center annually trains about 700 military personnel in mountain and special training programs.
