Exercise Report: Tsentr-2019
In recent months, the Russian Aerospace Forces and Airborne Forces have taken part in a series of exercises to test new ideas and concepts for rapid intervention missions. The largest so far was Exercise Tsentr-2019. Dmitri Sribnyi reports from Donguz in the Urals region.
The cited purpose of the manoeuvres is to verify the level of training among the troops and headquarters, expand the combat training to which troops are exposed and increase the level of interaction with armed forces from other countries that participate. The latest exercise also demonstrated the readiness of Russia and the states of the Central Asian region to protect their national interests.
