MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. Mechanized infantry units of the Russian military group in Transdniestria will practise elimination of a hypothetical enemy’s manpower and materiel with grenade launchers and machine-guns, the Western Military District’s spokesman, Colonel Oleg Kochetkov, has told the media.
"The troops will perform training tasks to eliminate light armored vehicles, fire emplacements and manpower of a hypothetical enemy with AGS-17 grenade launchers Plamya and heavy machineguns Utyos.
Kochetkov said both weapons were very effective against frontline and low-flying attack aircraft. The troops will practise use of these weapons to repel an attack by a Sukhoi-25 fighter-bomber and a Mi-24 helicopter gunship.
Also, there will be reconnaissance and tactical camouflage technique training sessions.
Joint peacekeeping forces of Russia, Moldova and Transdniestria, as well as a group of military observers from Ukraine are now maintaining peace on the two banks of the Dniester River. No violence outbreaks have been recorded in the region during their presence, which allowed Chisinau and Tiraspol to negotiate peaceful settlement of disputes.
Moldova says the conflict is over and calls for changing the existing peacekeeping format by deploying an international mission of OSCE observers. Transdniestria says Russia’s military presence in the unrecognized republic guarantees its security.
