Mountains Are Not Given up to the Weak!

In the Carpathians, the project "Mountain Training Course" is underway, which is being implemented at the initiative of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Last week, the project was attended by representatives of the 49th Reconnaissance Training Centers, as well as servicemen of the United States Armed Forces - representatives of the Joint Multinational Training Group - Ukraine (JMTG-U).

The training program for reconnaissance men in the mountains had a number of peculiarities. Thus, Ukrainian servicemen together with American servicemen, climbed Hoverla mostly at night.

“We were in winter mountains for the first time. Mountains are a danger in general, and winter mountains are an unpredictable danger. Therefore, I felt a special responsibility for the subordinate personnel. In general, the guys were very interested in. It was possible to check yourself how motivated you are to perform the tasks. I am glad that my subordinates successfully performed all the tasks,” said Vladyslav K., the reconnaissance group leader.
