MOSCOW, July 16. /TASS/. About 2,000 paratroopers of the Tula-based airborne division will practise landing operations during their drills in the Pskov Region in northwest Russia, Airborne Force spokesman, Lieu.-Col. Yevgeny Meshkov said on Thursday.
"The main phase of tactical exercises with personnel and combat hardware landing and live firing will be held on July 16-17 near Pskov. Over two days, about 2,000 airborne troops and more than 30 pieces of combat hardware will practise air-dropping from Ilyushin Il-76 planes," the spokesman said.
The paratroopers will be airlifted to the place of their exercises by the planes of Russian military transport aviation, after which they will be airdropped together with combat vehicles to the simulated enemy’s rear and will also practise crossing the river, the spokesman said.
Flexible defense at the Pskov Region shooting ranges will be a specific feature of the paratroopers’ drills, the Airborne Force spokesman said.
