The surprise readiness check of the Russian armed forces demonstrated the effectiveness of command and control over troops in isolated areas “in a lever mode” – through the National Defense Control Center, said Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin.

“The check was characterized by the fact that the troops performed in isolated areas under the single plan, and were coordinated by the National Defense Control Center of the Russian Federation”, – said Shoigu.

He noted that in addition to assessing the possibilities of the combined strategic command of the Northern Fleet on military security in the Arctic, one of the main objectives of the exercise was to test the effectiveness of command and control through the National Defense Control Centre.
