    According to the Commander of the 20th Combined Arms Army, there are 2 divisions being formed in the Voronezh and Belgorod regions based on the 9th and 23rd brigades. again time will clarify this.

    November 17 started the command-staff exercise (KSHT) in the Western military district (ZVO) with controls formations and military units of the 20th Field Army, which is stationed in the Voronezh, Belgorod and Bryansk regions.

    On the west direction is maintained the pressure of NATO, does not stop anti-Russian rhetoric in NATO countries and Ukraine, and the maneuvers of the 20th Army remain highly relevant (from Belgorod to Kiev in a straight line - only 430 km).

    According to the KSHT, conducted a military operation with a wide variety of weapons. The staffs at various levels in the challenging environment should take rapid decisions and to ensure a continuous and sustainable management of the troops. During the training clock exchange of information are processed by an automated control system, refined algorithms for processing operations (combat operations) and troop leadership.

    Training centers of the Western Military District at the end of the school year (in the army, he ends November 30) released the 3000 junior professionals who today have the opportunity to confirm the class qualification in the field.

    Yet, for what purpose the 20th combined-arms army returned from the Nizhny Novgorod region to the western borders of the country?
    The answer to NATO calls

    Following the withdrawal of Russian troops from the Warsaw Pact in the 1990s, the Russian army and the division declined steadily for decades. And at the beginning of the XXI century the western direction and the capital of Russia defended alone 20 th Guards Army combined arms (derived from the German Democratic Republic), which was deployed in a shortened form in twelve regions of the Central Federal District. In 2010, the headquarters of the army and some of its parts were transferred from the Voronezh region to the east, in Nizhny Novgorod. And some draft boards were from Smolensk to Moscow. Reverse the movement began only in 2014, against a background of strained relations with Ukraine.

    In February of 2016 was the first time in a quarter century in Russia a new tank army is formed . Today, the western borders of the country cover two full-fledged military association. This is not a repetition of the experience of the Cold War of the XX century, as an answer to the modern Western strategy of containment of Russia .

    Military training ground Pogonovo near Voronezh cleared of unexploded ordnance
    Near the state border, new military units and new Training Ground. Recently, in the Voronezh region began clearing unexploded ordnance and preparation for reconstruction of the landfill Pogonovo, discussed the possibility of expanding military range for Boguchar. There, on a plot of 206 hectares of building two military town, which plans to deploy more than 5,000 troops (the cost of the project will amount to about 2.1 billion. Rubles).

    The commander of the 20th Guards Army, Major-General Yevgeny Nikiforov said recently that in the Voronezh region formed two divisions - based on the 9th separate motorized rifle Vislenskoy and 23rd separate Guards Motorised Piotrkov teams. The process should be completed by December 1, 2016. Save in the army and the compound in the Bryansk region - the 28th separate motorized rifle brigade Simferopol translated from Yekaterinburg.

    Not all of the important teachings and training of troops are the general public, but Russia vigorously strengthens defenses on the west. Increased intensity of training in the field, and even the command-and-staff exercises and training have a strong practical orientation.

    Earlier in November, held the 20th Army doctrine, in which improved methods of management in general, the preparation of commanders and staffs, administration. Perfected organization and management of various types of fighting, the modern organization of work at the control points. The goal - to get as close to the high-tech parameters of information exchange. In modern conflicts, wins the one who will make the right decisions.

    In September, a motorized infantry soldiers connections Western military district (ZVO), with the support of helicopters at the site in the Voronezh region Pogonovo worked suppression breakthrough of the border. And later, as if completing the liquidation of the breakthrough, artillery successfully performed on the same night shooting range .

    At the recent enlarged meeting of the Western Military District Military Council in St. Petersburg the results of the county work was finalized during the year. The commander of the ZVO Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov said: "In 2016, in the district held more than 1,100 exercises and training at various levels, the troops received more than one thousand units of modern military equipment, done extensive work on the improvement of infrastructure and the commissioning of new facilities of combat training ". ZVO defined objectives for the new school year. Priority will be given to the acquisition units and formations military district under the contract.

    Despite the trials of the past two decades, Russia has managed to maintain a defense capability and sovereignty. This has the merit of the 20th Guards Army, which began fighting way in July 1942 (as the 4th Panzer Army) fought for Stalingrad, thunder and Lviv Breslavskiy grouping of German troops.
    Later, soldiers of the 20th Army with honor passed through Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Moldova, North Caucasus, Africa, Yugoslavia. And today, in the classroom and at the sites of the guards adequately prepared to meet any opponent - in the western strategic direction.
