A detachment from the Russian Airborne Assault Forces will go to the United States in May for a joint anti-terror exercise, Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Alexander Kucherenko said on Thursday.
The exercise will take place between May 24 and 31 at Fort Carson, Colo.
“This is the first time such an exercise is being held,” he said. “The AAF will contribute a special task group that will exercise with U.S. special service weapons.”
The Russian group will arrive a week before the start of the drills, he added.
