ULAN-UDE, January 13. /TASS/. A surprise combat readiness inspection of military units of radiation, chemical and biological protection (NBC) of the Eastern Military District has been conducted in the Republic of Buryatia in the south of Siberia, a district spokesman said on Wednesday. The units drilled actions to determine the degree of contamination of facilities and terrain, taking samples of water, air and soil for analysis under the scenario of weapons of mass destruction use by a simulated enemy.
"The troops were alerted and marched to a simulating facility where they drilled actions in the conditions of the use of weapons of mass destruction by a simulated enemy," spokesman for the Eastern Military District Alexander Gordeyev said. "The NBC protection units deployed aerosol countermeasures vehicles and decontaminated equipment, weapons and facilities in the area of simulated use of weapons of mass destruction using disinfectant solutions."
The snap check has involved more than 400 troops and 50 units of special equipment and vehicles.
The NBC protection regiment was formed in December 2014, it is part of the all-arms army of the Eastern Military District stationed in Buryatia.
