Fight against terrorism to be trained during military exercises of the CIS countries


Russia’s Aerospace Defense Forces (ADF) will launch over 200 combat training exercises this summer starting Monday, June 1, including as part of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) united air defense system “Combat Commonwealth-2015,” the Defense Ministry announced Sunday.

“In the summer period, ADF forces will conduct over 10 command and staff exercises with affiliated commands and units, three tactical live-fire exercises, including joint exercises of the united CIS air defense ‘Combat Commonwealth-2015’ with the use of S-400 ‘Triumf’ and Pantsir-S [anti-aircraft weapons systems],” the ministry said in statement.

“In total, approximately 200 combat training events are planned. This substantially increases the intensity of practical weapons training,” the Defense Ministry’s statement adds.
