Dnipro: SBU participates in exercises on territorial defence (video)
The SBU officers participated in three-day command-and-staff training on territorial defence under the guidance of the command of Operational Command East Land Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Participants of the training came from the Coordination Group of Anti-terrorist Centre under the SBU Office in Dnipropetrovsk region, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the National Guard, the State Emergency Service, the National Police, the Emergency Medicine Brigade, regional and local authorities.
During the events, the issues of organization of territorial defence management in the region and the procedure for inter-agency cooperation to prevent possible sabotage and terrorist threats were worked out.
On May 16, law enforcers carried out measures to neutralize conditional terrorists at “Dniprovsky Metro”, who, according to legend, took hostages and threatened to blow up the metro station.
The final phase of the training took place the next day, near the building of Dnipropetrivsk Regional State Administration, where the conditional “terrorists” tried to seize administrative buildings.
Due to the effective and concerted action of the special forces units, the “criminals” were timely neutralized.
Having finished the activities, the The Coordination Group of Anti-terrorist Centre analysed each phase of the training and noted the proper level of readiness of the units to respond to possible terrorist threats.
