Tank drills with 1,500 personnel taking place in Western District


More than 500 pieces of armory, as well as military and special equipment will be involved in the exercises, the service said.

“More than 1,500 military servicemen from the tank units of the Western Military District have begun tactical exercises to include live fire within the frameworks of the second stage of testing for the Center of Combat Readiness at Mulino in the Nizhegorod Region,” the press service said.

The new exercises come as NATO has been building up their military presence along Russia’s western border, to Moscow’s growing concern.
