ROSTOV-ON-DON, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Troops stationed in the Krasnodar, Stavropol regions and the Republic of Adygea in the south of Russia have been transferred to a different schedule of service to enable servicemen to watch TV broadcasts from the Olympic Games, the press service of the South Military District said.
The amended schedule has enabled servicemen to watch the Olympic broadcasts on TV four hours longer than usual. For that purpose special rooms equipped with LCD TV screens and good acoustic systems have been provided for servicemen, the press service said.
A campaign of joint watching TV broadcasts from the Olympics was launched in troops of the South Military District under the slogan "Give Support to Ours". A poll conducted in troops of the South Military District showed that "watching TV broadcasts from the Olympics together helps bring servicemen closer and strengthens the spirit of comradeship in their ranks."
Earlier, the troops of Russia's Central Military District have been transferred to an "Olympics schedule" which enables servicemen to watch TV broadcasts from the Sochi-2014 Olympics.
The Olympics schedule will be in effect until February 23.
Sixty representatives of the Russian armed forces are competing in 14 kinds of sporting events at the Sochi 2014 Olympics.
