Russia went for some more military training near the Ukrainian border. More than 800 soldiers and 200 combat vehicles of the 20th combined-arms Army of the Western Military District are involved in the action that takes place in Russia's Voronezh Oblast.
According to Interfax-AVN, they practice in deflecting a covert attack of the "enemy" and plan the next steps to destroy the prevailing enemy forces.
"The legend is that the conditional adversary managed to bypass the major part of the army's group in Voronezh Oblast. To deflect the attack, crews of T-72B3 tanks and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles organized maneuver-based defense, using the local landscape to their advantage", reads the message.
The 20th combined-arms Army is considered one of the largest groups of Russia's Armed Forces. The HQ is located in Voronezh city. The troops are based in Voronezh, Kursk, Smolensk, and Bryansk Oblasts.
