MOSCOW, March 13. /TASS/. The Federal National Guard Troops Service, also known as the National Guard of Russia, has initiated a snap combat readiness check, the Guard’s press office reported on Monday.
"By decision of the Russian National Guard Troops Commander-in-Chief Army General Viktor Zolotov, a snap combat readiness check is being held from March 13. This inspection, which will start in the Central Federal District and will continue in other federal districts, is being held for the first time since the new federal executive body was established," the press office reported.
Some of the Russian Guard’s governing authorities, military units and formations have been put on alert and started conducting missions.
During the inspection, the National Guard troops "will practice their readiness to combat subversive activity and reconnaissance groups, terrorist and extremist formations, and will also carry out a set of measures to strengthen the defense of crucial state facilities in the areas of power supplies, industry and transport," the press office emphasized.
