Defense Ministry: Special Forces officers from Egypt appreciate exercises in the Chelyabinsk region


An Egyptian military delegation has arrived in Yekaterinburg, a city in the Urals, to borrow the Russian experience in the struggle against illegal armed groups, Assistant Commander of the Central Military District Colonel Yaroslav Roschupkin said on Tuesday.

“The parties will exchange experience in organizing operational and combat training of the troops and discuss modern methods of struggle against illegal armed groups,” he said.

According to Roschupkin, on July 29, the Egyptian officers will watch the battalion tactical exercises at the Chebarkul range near Chelyabinsk, where the Russian military will practice the neutralization of hypothetical terrorist groups. The Egyptian delegation’s trip to the Central Military District will come to an end on August 1, the colonel said.
