Pskov to host a Russian-U.S. conference to discuss antiterrorism exercises
A conference has taken place at the base of the 76th Guard Airborne Division in Pskov to discuss upcoming antiterrorism exercises, Airborne Forces spokeswoman Maj. Irina Kruglova told Interfax-AVN on Monday.
"There is a preliminary agreement to hold the second bilateral antiterrorism drill on the premises of the 104th Regiment of the 76th Guard Airborne Division in Pskov during the last ten days of August," she said.
The U.S. delegates to the conference watched live fire and airborne exercises of the Russian paratroopers, familiarized themselves with airborne training equipment and visited the division's shooting and training ranges, Kruglova said.
Russia and the United States held their first antiterrorism exercises at Fort Carson near Colorado Springs, Colorado, in May 2012. Servicemen of the 45th Guard special-purpose regime of the Russian Airborne Forces participated in those exercises.
