LUGANSK, March 14 (Lugansk Media Centre) - Lugansk People’s Republic tank and motorized infantry units held a live-fire drill at an LPR People’s Militia test field.

“Today, infantry fighting vehicle (BMP-1 type) and tank crews had a scheduled combat training at an LPR People’s Militia firing range,” LPR People’s Militia spokesman Andrey Marochko said. “The crews drilled a number of operations in simulated combat. They successfully coped with the tasks meeting all requirements and earning good grades.”

 “Broadly speaking, we have combat-ready servicemen capable of completing any mission on time,” the spokesman said.

The LPR People’s Militia holds similar drills for all its units at firing ranges on a regular basis.

In February, LPR law-enforcement bodies in Lugansk, Alchevsk and Stakhanov held a joint exercise to improve their capabilities in fighting terrorists and subversive operations by Ukrainian special task forces.
