MOSCOW, April 15. /TASS/. Air defense troops of Russia’s Eastern Military District have conducted field firing exercises in the Krasnodar region, the district’s spokesman Colonel Alexander Gordeyev reported on Wednesday.

"Anti-aircraft defense units of the Eastern Military District, stationed on the Sakhalin and Kuril Islands have conducted combat drills within a tactical exercise with field firing at a specialized range in the Krasnodar region. Combat crews conducted the drills, excellently firing from the IGLA man-portable surface-to-air missile systems, Strela-10 anti-aircraft missile systems, as well as Tunguska anti-aircraft missile and gun systems," Gordeyev said.
