Over 1000 Abkhaz and Russian militaries master coastal defence skills
At the Nagvalou Training Range, the personnel of the Southern Military District (SMD) in Abkhazia and servicemen of the Abkhaz Ministry of Defence (MoD) have repulsed the conditional attack of the Marine Corps assault on the Black Sea coast.
The training defence of the coastline was conducted both from the surface and from the air.
"Over a thousand militaries of Abkhazia and Russia have carried out elements of a defensive battle with various options of seizure by the conventional opponent of the coastline," the TASS reports with reference to the SMD's press service.
In the exercises, the accent was made on the creation of fortifications on the shore.
The Abkhaz militaries took part in the exercises involving aviation, land and marine forces for the first time, the "Interfax" reports.
