At one of the combat training grounds, near the administrative border with the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, battalion tactical exercises with combat firing and the involvement of aircraft took place.

This was reported by UA with reference to Facebook of the Joint Forces Operation.

A Marine battalion, reinforced by a tank company and a unit of army helicopters, was involved in the exercises.

According to the legend of the exercises, the advanced unit, with the support of the army aircraft, repulsed a detachment of the Marines of the conventional enemy, which was trying to break through the defense. In addition, the Marines, supported by tanks and artillery, made it impossible for the main enemy forces to advance into the defenses.

Having successfully completed the combat mission, the military skillfully carried out raids, occupied the dominant heights and repulsed the forces of the conventional enemy.

“These tactical exercises are an integral part of the process of maintaining the combat effectiveness of units. During the training, the personnel received the practice of fighting, and the commanders of all units worked out the interaction in conditions close to combat” – said the Commander of the Joint Forces of the Armed Forces, Lieutenant General Serhiy Nayev.

According to the Commander, main goal was for everyone in their place to make timely and informed decisions. That is why the urgent aspect of these exercises was to check the level of training of officers, sergeants and soldiers, as well as the formation of their high moral and psychological qualities.
