The 19th Independent Mechanized Brigade of the Northwestern Operational Command and a number of army units of the Western Operational Command are being brought to readiness to carry out their missions. A number of reservists will be drafted as part of the inspection.

Personnel of the army units that are undergoing the inspection will have to take all the steps involved in preparing weapons, military and special hardware for actual use. Material and technical supplies will have to be loaded onto transport vehicles.
