On the Gozhsky training ground this Thursday, despite a decent frost, it was hot. The fact of the matter is whistling bullets, shells exploded and circling helicopters. So, on the basis of the Training Center of the 6th separate Guards mechanized Brigade, the territorial defense troops were assembled with the chairmen of the regional executive committees and the Minsk City Executive Committee, as well as their deputies and heads of military commissariats.
- We have created and operate a multi-level system of training managers of different levels to perform tasks of territorial defense. For example, this time the participants could get acquainted with the order of combat coordination of military units of the territorial troops, discuss issues of martial law, study samples of weapons serving in territorial units, see promising communication models, " said the Minister of Defense of Belarus Viktor Khrenin.
Several tactical episodes were shown to everyone present. A break through the checkpoint of saboteurs carrying weapons was simulated. And one of the most spectacular moments was the "breakthrough of the state border" with the participation of units of the territorial troops, the Armed Forces and the State Border Committee. The enemy was taken in a ring of fire and destroyed. During the next stage, the participants of the training camp were able to get acquainted with the main models of weapons of the territorial troops.
- What is important, the heads of the regional executive committees and the Minsk City Executive Committee were able to participate in the practical part of the training camp: to perform exercises on shooting from certain types of weapons. Because the principle of " Do as I do!"no one canceled it. And the leaders responsible for the organization of territorial defense should themselves act skillfully and use the types of weapons and military equipment that they will be in charge of, " said State Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus Alexander Volfovich.
Такія зборы праводзяцца штогод у розных абласцях краіны. У мінулым годзе ўдзельнікаў сустракала Віцебская вобласць, у гэтым годзе – Гродзенская. Дарэчы, гэта ўжо сёмае падобнага роду мерапрыемства ў нашай краіне.
- Now the modern concept of the army provides for mobility, good equipment and compactness. This is vital if there is a professional army and Territorial Defense Troops, which, if necessary, can quickly deploy and provide all the necessary assistance to regular units – Vladimir Karanik said.
