MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Russia’s new 150th motor rifle division has started defending the country’s southern frontiers, Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu said on Friday.
"I want to note that the 150th motor rifle division has started performing tasks for the defense of frontiers in the country’s south since yesterday," Shoigu said.
The division’s first cantonment was erected within short time limits thanks to new construction technologies, the defense minister said.
As Russia’s Southern Military District reported earlier, over 1,500 conscripts will serve in the new division.
As the Defense Ministry reported earlier, the 150th Idritsa-Berlin Kutuzov Order of the 2nd Degree Motor Rifle Division being established in Russia will start planned combat training from December 1, 2016.
The division will comprise motor rifle and tank regiments, an artillery regiment, an antiaircraft missile regiment, signals units, reconnaissance and logistics formations. The division will be armed with modern types of combat hardware: T-90A tanks, BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles and BTR-80 armored personnel carriers.
