    And why should I drop soldiers and equipment onto the ice?
    I think this is a trap for these units in the case of real hostilities. Or just show off? There are probably too many clowns in the General Staff of the Ministry of Defense of Russia ...

      "Why drop soldiers and equipment on ice floes?" ////

      How for what ??? Don't you know that recently the American
      a submarine surfaced in the Arctic right through the ice?

      Here they surfaced, relaxed, play football on ice ...
      and here "ra-a-z" - paratroopers! And everyone is taken prisoner.

      Well it's written right there:
      landing on a drifting ice floe of the units of the Airborne Forces and the Collective Forces of the CSTO Member States as part of a training search and rescue operation.

        Thank. I read it, but soldiers and equipment on the ice are needed, like a fifth wheel cart. Unless after that it will be necessary to carry out a search and rescue operation in relation to the landing parties themselves.

          As I understand it, since our troops have recently begun increasingly actively exploring the Arctic, then conducting rescue and training operations there will not be out of place. Shoigu is an experienced professional in this matter, represents where, how, and why rescue operations may be needed in the future.
