    The operational group of the Russian Forces in Tajikistan, the 201st military base, has practiced using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) at night in the Pamir Mountains, according to the press service of Russia’s Central Military District Command.

    The units of Russia’s 201st military base, stationed in Tajikistan, have practiced using UAVs at night time.

    The use of the Forpost and Orlan-10 drones was conducted as part of joint military exercises carried out by Russia and Tajikistan, Russia’s Central Military District Command said in its statement.

    The exercises were held in the Pamir Mountains, a mountain range in Central Asia, aimed at searching for and blocking maneuvering military groups in a hard-to-access area.

    Russia's 201st Motorized Rifle Division is stationed in Tajikistan with garrisons in Dushanbe, Kulyab and Kurgan-Tyube.
