DUSHANBE, April 29. /TASS/. Russia has held a large-scale military exercise 20 kilometers away from Tajikistan’s capital Dushanbe. Units of the 201st military base of the Russian Defense Ministry practised anti-terrorist operations, an aide to the commander of the Central Military District, Yaroslav Roshchupkin, told TASS.
"The 201st military base has carried out a terrain exercise to practice the search for and seizure of a base camp of militants in the mountains," Roshchupkin said. Drones were employed.
The Russian military base in Tajikistan is the largest Russian ground force outside the national territory. Up to 2020 its combat strength will increase to 9,000 men from 7,000.
