    The expansion of NATO to the borders of Russia, has created a feeling of insecurity for the Russians. Combined with the tensions with many of the former states of USSR and the recent spat with Georgia, it makes a volatile cocktail. The recent war games of troops from Russia and Belarus have triggred off alarms in the capitals of former Soviet republics who are now aligned with NATO.

    Results of "Ladoga-2009"

    14.10.2009 17:58 The armed forces, Russia, ucheniyaversiya Print

    Completed exercises "Ladoga-2009" became perhaps the biggest exercises in recent years. Died away shots of tank guns, silenced steel trills and automatic machine-gun bursts. The troops in winter quarters lead to the proper type of equipment and weapons. But work on the analysis of the results of exercise continues at the headquarters. What are they? Preliminary results are encouraging.


    These exercises were difficult and were largely experimental. Suffice it to say that within the operational and strategic exercises in-Ground Forces and other security agencies "Ladoga-2009" held at the same time, two operational and strategic doctrine. Actually "Ladoga-2009" in the north-west Russia. And "West-2009, which covered the central part of Russia, the territory of Moscow and part of the Volga-Ural military districts, as well as Belarus. Regional scale was unprecedented.


    As part of the exercises "Ladoga-2009" personal decision-Chief of Ground Forces, Army General Vladimir Boldyrev was suddenly raised the alarm, refer to the highest degree of alert and sent to the area of maneuvers in the North-West Russia 28 th Separate Motorized Infantry Brigade of the Volga-Urals Military District. The brigade arrived in the area of maneuvers and was preparing to conduct tactical exercises with live firing in the daytime. This has nothing to diminish the complexity of its tasks, the more so for in the next day as they had to act at night.


    But that's not all. The troops were fighting on the territory of nine (!) Polygons, including two marine. As the Chief of General Staff of the Army, Deputy Chief of maneuvers, Lieutenant General Sergei Skokov, unit performs combat training missions with live firing in the teams, including at night. A shelf Airborne implemented dropping personnel and equipment from aircraft, military transport aircraft Il-76. On the coast a landing was.


    An interesting and such a moment. In part raznovidovoy and raznorodovoy of troops on the teachings of the various operating aircraft (airplanes and helicopters), have been firing rockets and artillery detachment Northern Fleet warships. 326-I missile brigade of the Leningrad military district complied with the group launch tactical missiles "Point-To-Do" at a distance of 52 km on the conditional enemy command post. The aim was struck by the first hit. That is, by the saturation of artillery and bombardment of the enemy's teachings were simply unique. A decision on missile launching was made commander of Combined Forces in the strategic direction.


    Recall that a tactical missile system "Tochka-U" does launch missiles at a distance of 120 km. Crew launcher - 3 persons. Time of deployment of the complex - 10 minutes. In place of this menacing missile is already a new operational-tactical missile system - the notorious "Iskander".


    Along with the rocket troops army paratroopers 76-second landing-assault division at the district site "Struga Reds worked the scene to complete the tactical destruction of the command and control of conditional enemy. To draw the fighting, some thousands of troops landing assault regiment parachuted with standard weapons and equipment (about 30 units) at the landing site, and made the 90-kilometre march to the area of teaching.


    Important place - the interaction of the army and navy with other forces. Within maneuvers "Ladoga-2009" at the firing range RF MVD Internal Troops near Peterhof, for example, have passed special tactical exercises 33rd separate special purpose brigade of the North-West Regional Command of Internal Troops MVD RF. In the course of it worked out the practical actions of the troops on search and destroy sabotage and reconnaissance groups, blocking populated GOVERNMENTAL items seized by terrorists and free the hostages. As well as arrangements for the protection and defense of state and military facilities (nuclear power plants, ports, federal transportation links). To action were involved in more than one and a half thousand troops Interior Ministry troops, army aviation and armour.


    However, special attention was paid to study the most severe trial, existing in the armed forces - a clear and uninterrupted operation of control system of the General Staff to the platoon inclusive. The statement was made commander of Ground Forces, Army General Vladimir Boldyrev. He noted that one of the main objectives of the exercises "Ladoga-2009" was to "investigate the management of the Armed Forces of the General Staff to a platoon inclusive. This is the most difficult issue in our army, on the solution of which we are working on our teachings, "- said Army General Vladimir Boldyrev.


    Peculiarity of the exercises "Ladoga-2009" is also in the fact that they were part of the strategic maneuvers "Autumn 2009", covering all three strategic directions for the western theater of military operations: South-Western, Western and North-Western. Commander of Ground Forces recalled in this connection that in June this year as part of maneuvers "Autumn-2009" in the North Caucasus region were operational-strategic exercises Kavkaz-2009 ". Naturally, all this is the result and consequence of the transfer of the Armed Forces of the country to a new brigade structure. It was important to see how it behaves in an environment as close to combat.


    Today in the Ground Forces Russia has in fact formed 85 brigades of constant combat readiness, including combined arms, rocket, landing-ground attack, electronic warfare and other compounds that can operate in any directions. This was confirmed by Chief of Ground Forces, Army General Vladimir Boldyrev, the end of special tactical exercises 33rd Separate Brigade for operational use of the North-West Regional Command of the Interior Troops of the Interior Ministry, which took place within the operational and strategic maneuvers Army and other security agencies in the North-West Russia . Battle of the organizational and staff structure of the Army will now be presented units and formations only constant alert, able to perform tasks in the shortest possible time, said Commander. He explained that it is highly maneuverable forces capable of acting without action on mobilization and additional slazhivaniyu in all directions. But first and foremost on those where there is most probable threats to national and military security of Russia.


    And what lies ahead? In 2010, in the eastern region of Russia have already been scheduled and will be operational-strategic exercises "Vostok-2010". They will be part of troops of the Siberian and Far Eastern military districts, and will involve economic complex, which is located on the east. And the results of "Ladoga-2009" will certainly be taken into account.

    Vladimir Semenchenko, MIC
