More than 30 missile regiments of Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces took part on Thursday in large-scale exercises in 12 regions of the country, Defense Ministry’s spokesman for the military branch Colonel Igor Yegorov said.
"According to the drill scenario, simulated enemy’s sabotage groups planted mines on the combat patrolling route sections and used toxic agents in the field. Engineer troops, radiological, chemical and biological defense forces, as well as anti-sabotage units have been engaged in the exercises," Yegorov said.
During the maneuvers the troops have used the RKhM-4 chemical reconnaissance vehicles and drones.
