Belarusian servicemen underwent training at the Mountain Training Center of the Armed Forces of Kazakhstan. In this training center, they learned methods of movement in complex mountainous terrain and techniques for overcoming various mountain obstacles, as reported by Sarbaz.kz.
Twelve foreign servicemen were assessed for their ability to carry out actions and complete combat tasks in mountainous terrain. They were trained in techniques for overcoming different mountain obstacles and moving in challenging mountain conditions. Kazakhstani instructors provided the visiting servicemen with theoretical knowledge and shared practical mountain training skills.
"The participants of the training camp attended lectures on mountain terrain forms, mountain hazards, precautionary methods used in mountain training, climbing rules, route classification, and climbing organization. Belarusian colleagues also learned how to tie knots used in mountaineering. Practical skills were gained during training sessions on transporting casualties using improvised means in mountain terrain, moving on rocks and ice with safety measures. Belarusian servicemen put their acquired knowledge to the test by ascending the '1B' category difficulty peak and conducting a river crossing in mountainous terrain," stated the Ministry of Defense of Kazakhstan.
On the final day of the training camp, servicemen from Belarus and Kazakhstan conducted a joint ascent of Mount Khrischaty, and the highlight of the event was a ceremony during which servicemen who demonstrated good knowledge were awarded the "Mountaineer" badge and corresponding certificates.
The joint training camp for servicemen from Belarus and Kazakhstan, as well as the peacekeeping platoon of a separate airborne brigade, was conducted in accordance with the cooperation plan between the Ministries of Defense of Kazakhstan and Belarus for the year 2023.
