MOSCOW, April 10. /TASS/. Russian paratroopers and servicemen of the rapid response forces of the Collective Security Treaty Organization will take a 70-kilometer dogsled ride in the Arctic, a spokesman for the Russian Airborne Troops said on Friday.
"The [dog] sleds allow paratroopers to move at a speed of 6-7 kilometres per hour," Colonel Yevgeny Meshkov said.
Each sled weighs more than 200 kilograms, he added.
The paratroopers started their Arctic drills on April 7.
