    TOWNSHIP OF DZHIDA (Buryatia), January 13 (RIA Novosti correspondent Alexei Berezin) - The level of combat readiness will increase in the first place in the units of permanent readiness, said Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov after visiting the bomber aviation regiment of one of the formations of the 14th army of the Air Force and the Air Defense Forces.

    "We shall continue to quietly but systematically and purposefully increase the level of combat training in all units and formations, in the armed services and in combat arms, but in the first place - in the units of permanent readiness," said Sergei Ivanov.

    The minister observed the training missile and bomb attacks of the regiment and highly rated them.

    "Despite a lot of objective difficulties in the armed forces and in the country in general, the officers, warrant officers and soldiers of this regiment have proved that they can carry out all the combat tasks assigned to them," said Sergei Ivanov.
