The units of the Airborne Forces of the Russian Federation and the Collective Forces of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO CSTO) will land in April on a drifting ice floe in Arctic waters as part of a training rescue expedition, reports TASS message of the representative of the Airborne Forces Evgenia Meshkov.




“It is planned that after the completion of the whole cycle of preparatory activities, military personnel who have completed the full training cycle will be able to take part in a humanitarian humanitarian search and rescue expedition with practical landing on a drifting ice floe in the central Arctic Ocean”
said the bags.

Earlier in the Russian Defense Ministry reported that "the divisions of the Airborne Forces of Russia and the servicemen of the CSTO CORRF are planning to land in one of the Arctic regions in April."

The ministry also noted that "the event will be held in conjunction with the expeditionary center of the Russian Geographical Society."

      To visit the polar bears. Practice and freeze your nose. Then, in American newspapers they will write about a new kind of polar explorers of the Russian Federation, which Rambo himself taught.

      The main thing is that everyone comes back whole, not frostbitten. Our guys are not used to working in such conditions, but there will be a big question with the CSTO officers.

        I read the news on April 2 "Belarus has registered in the military doctrine a ban on participation in operations abroad." - I am wondering how Belarus will participate in the operations of the CSTO and the union state? And why do we arm the army of the Republic of Belarus at our own expense, but in fact we get an obligation in the plan if the Republic of Belarus attacks us it is forbidden to interfere, they will wait until they are attacked. (phrases they say the Russian Federation can handle itself if something small happens, and if we fight with NATO, then RB will not help.)
        PS, IMHO, if the Russian Federation supplies weapons to the "union" republics, we should more often use the forces of the CSTO in different situations, the Americans in the same Afghanistan have not invited anyone.

        As far as I read, the second "sponsor" of the ODBK CRRF after Russia is Kazakhstan

        If there are ours, then I dare to assure that the Kazakhs are familiar with frosts - our climate is as severe as Siberia - here you are not St. Petersburg but Dzhezkazgan, etc.

      There the day before yesterday there was a landing of special reaction forces; or including, or only Chechen special forces ... In short, some of the tasks worked out, then the ice floe cracked (there the camp of polar explorers and the airfield, now due to breaking the ice into a ram turned into a ram), they tried to fix it - the focus didn’t come out, it’s if in a nutshell.

      This landing, apparently, is being thrown for support, since there is dry land and other things will be not enough at all.

      That's what working out in conditions close to the database means ... Writing is good in the heat.

      Good luck guys! God is with them !!!

    You need to be ready to defend your homeland in extreme Arctic conditions, and there are huge reserves of hydrocarbons smile

    It would be better if the landing was landed on one of the Arctic islands belonging to Russia, especially since now some abandoned military bases in the Russian north are being restored and such maneuvers would be useful.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but the CSTO needs to train in the south in the mountains, block the Dushman paths and build up groups. And in the Arctic, we will figure it out ourselves.

      The site’s opinion rinses like a rag in the wind. About a month ago, they charged me for the same comment and put in a good deal.

    You can minus, but the US is "pulling" NATO. Great Britain is helping a little, Russia is "pulling" the CSTO. Kazakhstan is helping a little.

    You need to learn in different conditions, and you also need to check yourself.

    so that everyone comes back whole, not frostbitten.

    Let's hope that in April frosts are not so severe.
    I wonder how they will be removed from the ice.
    That would have taken their submarines.
    The NATO’s brain would explode from such an interaction.
