Commander of Russian Army Corps of Engineers Lieutenant-General Yuri Stavitsky revealed on Thursday the high success of the mine-clearing vehicles and combat engineer protective gear used in Syria.
“Perhaps, we have advanced quite enough in protective gear and I can say responsibly that we have probably taken up the leading role,” he said at an international conference on humanitarian mine clearing.
“This has been proven in Syria as we have not sustained losses, although there have been instances but personnel are alive,” he explained.
“All the above-mentioned means have demonstrated their reliable operation in adverse climatic conditions with the high intensity of their use,” Ovdiyenko said.
