A meeting of the military council was held at the headquarters of the Pacific Fleet

26 July in the headquarters of the Pacific Fleet in Vladivostok hosted a visiting session of the Military Council of the Eastern Military District. The commander of the troops of the Eastern Military District, Colonel-General Sergei Surovikin, reported to the meeting participants and media representatives about the strategic tasks for the VVO troops for this and the next year. The meeting was attended by the Vice-Governor of Primorsky Krai Alexander Los, the chief of the EMERCOM of Russia for the Primorsky Territory, Colonel Vladimir Shekhovtsev, representatives of the district command, military prosecutors.

According to Sergei Surovikin, the most important event this year will be the Vostok-2014 strategic exercise, scheduled for September. Now the troops are using in practice a fundamentally new training system, which is based on intensive combat training. The command increased the consumption of training ammunition five times, and for some types of weapons - seven times. Field and night classes were added to the program.

Since the beginning of the school year, this system has been tested on ground forces, and since June 1 it has been introduced in the formations and military units of the command of the Air Force and Air Defense and Coastal Troops of the Pacific Fleet.

As the commander of the VVO troops noted, the new system has already proved its effectiveness: in June, the crew of the infantry combat vehicle of the Pacific Fleet brigade of the Pacific Fleet from Vladivostok took the first place in the individual standings in tank biathlon, which allowed the Eastern Military District to win confidently in the team event. The crew of the BTR-80 brigade of the Marine Corps of the Pacific Fleet from Vladivostok took the first place in the individual standings in driving combat vehicles at the Baltic naval derby-2014.

The commander also talked about the successful experience of international exercises based on the example of the recently completed Russian-Indian naval maneuvers "Indra-2014". During the exercise, the crews of the ships of the Pacific Fleet demonstrated maritime training, fully realized their capabilities in reconnaissance, target designation and tactical camouflage, showed a creative approach in developing a plan for the actions of forces in a situation as close as possible to combat.

In August, the divisions of the district will take part in two more international exercises: from August 12 to 25 - in the Russian-Mongolian exercise "Selenga-2014" in Mongolia and from August 24 to 29 - in the joint exercise of the member countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization "Peace Mission -2014 "on the territory of the People's Republic of China. In total, over 1200 servicemen and about 150 pieces of equipment from the Eastern Military District will be involved in these exercises, including aviation - Su-25 aircraft and Mi-8 helicopters.
