SAMARA, May 25. /TASS/. The Russian army held firing exercises with Buk-M2 medium-range surface-to-air missile systems for the first time this year, successfully thwarting an imaginary enemy’s cruise missile attack, the press office of Russia’s Central Military District said on Monday.

"The combat crews of Buk-M2 air defense missile systems have prevented a simulated enemy tactical cruise missile attack on the positions of an integrated combined arms force at the Kapustin Yar firing range in the Astrakhan Region," the press office said.

"These were the first firing exercises of Russian air defense forces using Buk-M2 missile systems," the press office of the Central Military District said.

Surface-to air missiles were fired concurrently at two complex targets, the press office said.

The firing exercises that involved over 300 air defense personnel marked the concluding stage of preparations by the Alkino air defense brigade of the Central Military District, the sole unit in the Russian Ground Forces operating Buk-M2 air defense missile systems.
