A surprise combat readiness inspection of military units of radiation, chemical and biological protection (NBC) of the Eastern Military District has been conducted in the Republic of Buryatia in the south of Siberia, a district spokesman said on Wednesday.

"The troops were alerted and marched to a simulating facility where they drilled actions in the conditions of the use of weapons of mass destruction by a simulated enemy," spokesman for the Eastern Military District Alexander Gordeyev said. "The NBC protection units deployed aerosol countermeasures vehicles and decontaminated equipment, weapons and facilities in the area of simulated use of weapons of mass destruction using disinfectant solutions."
