Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu personally checked the training of citizens called up from the reserve at the military training grounds of the Western Military District.
“Sergey Shoigu inspected the practical exercises of citizens called up from the reserve in fire, tactical and medical training. Classes are held with increased intensity, including at night,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.
According to the military department, Shoigu drew special attention of the command to the conditions for accommodating and providing mobilized citizens with hot meals both at the location of the unit and at the training grounds.
At the military training ground, the head of the Russian military department also heard reports from the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Colonel-General Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, and the head of the Main Directorate of Combat Training of the RF Armed Forces, Colonel-General Ivan Buvaltsev, on the organization of military personnel called up from the reserve to undergo a course of combat training in various military registration specialties, as well as their further combat coordination as part of units.
It should be noted that combat training sessions with military personnel called up for “partial mobilization” are not held in military registration and enlistment offices or military units where doctors, rear services employees work with them and units are being formed. They take place on the territory of military training grounds, where servicemen go after receiving personal weapons.
