    A three-day special training of the military police was launched in the Northern Fleet with the involvement of all units within the borders of the Murmansk and Arkhangelsk regions. It will deal with issues of combat readiness, ensuring law and order and military discipline, road safety during the movement of troops, as well as the protection of command posts and escort of critical cargo.
