MOSCOW, February 14. /ITAR-TASS/. An international anti-mine centre will be created in the Moscow region by June 1 on the base of engineer troops’ training school, chief of Russia’s General Staff Valery Gerasimov said.
An idea on setting up the international anti-mine centre in Russia was put forth at a session of the Russia-NATO Council in October 2013 and backed by several countries. The centre is being created within strengthening cooperation between the Russian Armed Forces and the armies of foreign countries to counter hand-made explosive devices and ground-mine-clearing.
In order to enhance the operational management of the armed forces Russia is planning to create a national defense centre from December 1, Gerasimov said.
