PSKOV, February 19. /TASS/. Russia’s airborne troops will continue drills near Russia’s western borders over the tense situation in the Baltic republics, a top-ranking Russian military said on Friday.
"The training plans of the Russian airborne troops include intensive use of Strugi Krasnye firing range and other shooting grounds in the Western Military District," Commander of the Russian Airborne Troops Vladimir Shamanov said summing up the results of the airborne troops exercised in the Pskov region in northwestern Russia.
He said that Russian airborne troops are acting "with due account of the tense situation in the Baltic Republics, which has a tendency towards aggravation." "For instance, a Stryker brigade combat team is being deployed in Lithuania," he said.
