Servicemen of the Belarusian Special Operations Forces arrived in Pskov on Tuesday. Together with a unit of Russia’s 76th Airborne Division they will take part in a two-stage command and staff exercise, the ministry said.
Airborne Troops spokesperson, Major Irina Kruglova said earlier that about 3,000 paratroopers would be airdropped from 17 Il-76 transport planes in two districts of the Pskov region on August 11-16.

Participating in the exercises will be over 30 aircraft and helicopters, including Su-34 frontline bombers, and Ka-52, Mi-28, Mi-24, and Mi-8 helicopters.
