MINSK, 26 October (BelTA) – Over the past academic year, approaches to military training were revisited, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Belarus - First Deputy Defense Minister Viktor Gulevich told journalists during the operational gathering of the command staff, BelTA has learned.

“The past academic year prompted us to rethink the approaches to training our troops. This pertains to command and control, placement of command posts in various settings, their security and mobility. All this was revised during the year,” Viktor Gulevich said.

According to the chief of the General Staff, the new approaches are workable, and the Armed Forces are on the right track. Speaking about combat training strategies, Viktor Gulevich emphasized the importance of greater mobility and independence of individual tactical-level units: platoon, company, battalion.

“With this in mind, a lot has been done to upgrade and re-supply our units. This also applies to unmanned aerial vehicles of various modifications, communications and surveillance equipment. All this allows our troops to monitor the battlefield, manage firepower and perform fire missions,” Viktor Gulevich emphasized.

According to the chief of the General Staff, the most important thing is to stick to the training schedule. Military personnel should constantly practice in order to acquire the necessary combat skills. Belarus is closely monitoring the situation along its borders, and the deployment of various units is under control. “If we see some risks and challenges, we immediately send our forces and duty units that can promptly repel a possible offensive,” Viktor Gulevich added.
