"The scenario of the exercise is similar to the real situation: undeclared war, hybrid activities of the enemy, no strict front line, etc." said Oleksandr Kyrylenko, the representative of the marine brigade command, head of the training headquarters.

"This is why the battalion needs to conduct raiding activities, force a crossing, block and destroy illegal gangs in a certain area, and then resort to defense activities," the officer said.
