Russian Airborne units from Kostroma have performed landing operation in Belarus for the first time in course of the joint Russian-Belarusian tactic exercise.
Several airborne groups of Russia and Belarus (about 250 men) landed on the “Sahara” landing pad.
Transport aviation crews of the Belarusian Air Force demonstrated high professionalism level in dropping the insert group on the restricted area in the border zone of the Union State.
After landing, the paratroopers of both countries moved to the assigned area in order to prepare for special activities in the responsibility zone.
Servicemen of the Airborne regiment located in Kostroma will perform a landing operation in the territory of the Republic of Belarus in course of the joint Russian-Belarusian exercise.
The landing operation will be held in the unknown area for the Russian paratroopers, which was called “Sahara” for unique terrain, which had been encircled by thick forest.
This area was called as “Sahara” for deep sand and complete absence of any growth.
The insert operation will be held by two ways: landing and parachuting.
Today, delegation of the Special Task Forces of the Belarusian Armed Forces has arrived in Russia.
Russian and Belarusian paratroopers are holding the first planning conference on preparation for the joint exercise with units of the Russian Airborne troops and Special Task Forces of the Belarusian Armed Forces.
The working meeting on planning the scenario of the exercise is taking place in the territory of the Tula Airborne formation.
Within 4 days, the delegation from Belarus will also visit Airborne training area and a landing site in the Ryazan Region.
