The first joint anti-terror exercise, involving Russian and U.S. forces in Colorado, ended with the “neutralization” of a terrorist group, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said on Thursday.
The entire operation took not more than seven minutes, according to Col Alexander Kucherenko.
“The main trophy included important documents and a large sum of money designed to pay for terrorist activities, which were removed from the chief of the terrorist gang,” he said.
The first ever joint Russia-U.S. anti-terror military exercises on American soil, were held at Ft. Carson in Colorado, from Tuesday through Thursday. A special unit of Russian paratroopers worked alongside American land forces as part of the exercise.
The Russian and U.S. special units engaged in joint gun practice as well as mountain training, parachute exercises, and demolition techniques training.
