RAW: China, Russia hold joint anti-terror military drills

Chinese People’s Armed Police Force (CAPF) and Russia’s newly-formed National Guard took part in large-scale joint anti-terror exercises in Russia’s Moscow and Smolensk regions.

China’s Snow Leopard and Falcon commando units, as well as the Russian National Guard’s Vityaz unit, are participating in the exercises.

It’s the third time for the two countries’ interior forces to hold such exercises, which center on tactical skills in combating terrorism to boost practical cooperation between the forces of both sides.

Russia’s National Guard was created in April following the order of Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a bid to better fight terrorism, organized crime and drug trafficking across the country.
