Servicemen of the Southern Military District (YuVO) have completed preparations for the joint Russian-Pakistani military exercise “Friendship-2021”, which will be held from September 27 to October 6 at the Molkino training ground in the Krasnodar Territory.

About 80 servicemen of the Armed Forces of Pakistan and the same number of servicemen of the special forces unit of the 49th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District are involved in the exercise.

In the course of training, the scouts of the Southern Military District for a month improved their skills in conducting reconnaissance and search and ambush actions, camouflaging and covert movement on the ground, as well as arranging long-term observation posts and survival in isolation from the main forces.

The servicemen have worked out methods of detecting camouflaged command posts, radio stations and communication centers, accumulations of equipment and ammunition depots, and the capture of strategically important enemy targets.

In addition, the servicemen practiced parachute-free landing from military transport helicopters Mi-8AMTSh to limited areas of the terrain, in particular, on the slopes of the mountains, as well as in the forest. After the landing, the servicemen worked out the procedure for organizing the defense of the landing area, fire ambushes, and also repulsed attacks of conditional terrorists.

The joint Russian-Pakistani military exercise “Friendship-2021” will be held from September 27 to October 6, 2021 on the territory of the Molkino training ground in the Krasnodar Territory. Its purpose is to strengthen and develop military cooperation between the armed forces of the Russian Federation and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
