An artillery division in Russia's Far East practiced the deployment of self-propelled mortars 2S4 Tyulpan and struck a mock enemy avoiding the retaliatory strike.

VLADIVOSTOK (Sputnik) — The mortar squads of the Eastern Military District artillery divisions in Russia's Primorsky Territory conducted military exercises, Eastern Military District spokesman Vladimir Matveev said on Monday.

"An artillery division was raised by the emergency drill alarm and moved in a short time to the specified region. The division marched through mock infected areas and reflected a mock enemy attack," Matveev told journalists.
