Russian Airborne Forces to conduct training in Arctic

The Russian Airborne Forces will conduct a training exercise in the Arctic in spring 2014, Andrei Kholzakov, deputy commander of the Russian Airborne Forces, said.

"In March, we plan to conduct a joint training exercise with the 98th airborne division in the northern latitudes. We want to see how the troops will act, including in the Arctic zone. Troops have landed in that zone before. We need to know how contract servicemen and the headquarters will behave," he said on Rossiya 24 television on Thursday.
