Russia to launch Iskanders on border with Ukraine

At the end of July there will be held the exercises with the launch of the Iskander-M tactical missiles in the Southern Military District of Russia. It was reported in the press service of the district.

In late July, a missile brigade of the Southern Military District, located in the Krasnodar region, will start conducting exercises with the Iskander-M combat tactical missiles, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the Russian media.

“During the exercises, combat crews will make rocket attacks on ground targets and various infrastructure objects of an imaginary enemy at the distance of 300 km,” said the representative of the district.

The source noted that the active phase of the exercises with missile launches will take place at the Kapustin Yar firing ground in the Astrakhan region in late July.

It should be recalled that in March this year, in the framework of a sudden readiness test, Russia has deployed the Iskander complexes in the Kaliningrad region thereby strengthening the ground forces in the Baltic Sea.
