MOSCOW, December 29. /TASS/. Surprise combat readiness inspections of anti-terror units have been conducted in 26 regions of Russia in the run-up to the New Year holidays, the press service of the Western Military District reported on Tuesday.
"Combined antiterrorism units had four-day exercises to drill practical issues and operational procedures of combat alert forces in repelling an attack on military facilities, military units and garrisons. Each military unit acted under its own drill scenario covering all the relevant aspects of anti-terrorist activities from an attempt to plant a mine at ammunition depots to the seizure of buildings and taking of hostages in military garrisons," the statement says.
