MOSCOW, August 27. /TASS/. Marine units of Russia’s Caspian Flotilla have practiced searching for and destroying notional illegal armed formations at the Adanak mountainous training range in Dagestan in North Caucasus in a snap combat readiness check, the Southern Military District’s press office reported on Saturday.
"During the drills, the servicemen practiced assignments to covertly advance, search for, detect, block and liquidate notional illegal armed formations at various sections of terrain, overcome mine obstacles, seize the objectives of a notional enemy and release hostages," the press office said.
The drills also practice establishing interaction between the Caspian Flotilla’s marines and regional bodies of the Interior Ministry and the Federal Security Service of Russia on the advance routes during the march and in the course of an operation to destroy notional illegal armed formations.
The snap combat readiness check involves over 500 marines and about 100 pieces of combat and special hardware from the Caspian Flotilla’s marine battalions.
