Anti-terrorist special tactical drills in Odesa region (video)
The Coordination Group of Anti-terrorist Centre under the SBU Office in Odesa region conducted planned anti-terrorist special tactical trainings.
The regional units of the SBU, the State Border Guard Service, the National Guard, the State Emergency Service, the National Police, the State Penitentiary Service, the power officials and local government representatives took part in the near-real conditions training.
According to the training legend, a group of inmates from a regional penal colony set up a riot, seized hostages out of colony staff and put forward terrorist claims. The criminals’ associates “on the outside” were attempting to block the colony exit by massive rioting.
The operatives worked out the algorithm of joint actions of neutralizing the “illegal riot” both on the territory of the colony and outside it. At the final stage of the training, special forces carried out a successful assault operation aimed at “terrorists” deactivation and freeing the “hostages”.
Having analysed each phase of the operation in detail, the Coordination Group noted the high level of readiness of forces to carry out the assigned anti-terrorist tasks.
