    Anti-terrorism units in Russia's Eastern Military District have conducted large-scale exercises to repel terrorist attacks in the Amur Region, the district's spokesman said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Describing the script for the exercise, Col. Alexander Gordeev said, "a conventional armed bandit group attacked a military unit to seize the storage of ammunition and weaponry. As a result of the use of grenades by the conventional terrorists during the assault on the military unit, fire broke out in one of the checkpoints.".

    According to Gordeev, anti-terrorist units blocked terrorists and opened fire. After having eliminated the so-called "conventional gang," the fire brigade garrison extinguished a fire.

    About a dozen automobiles and light-armored military vehicles, and some 200 soldiers participated in the exercises.
