    "- says the message received by the Military Review.
    It is good that the Russian army began to take mountain training seriously. The model of snowshoes is not bad, light, practical.
    Only the message is a little strange to read. It is beautiful in Ergaki, only there are no highlands, no glaciers anywhere. I don’t know anything about the Oryol breed of horses, their ability to work in high altitude conditions, but there is reason to doubt, because never seen these horses in the highlands.
    Come to Asia for such exercises, have fun here.
