    Moscow, 28 April: The forces of the special subunits from the Russian
    Interior Ministry carry out over 230 operations of various kinds every
    day, the Russian deputy interior minister, Police Maj-Gen Mikhail
    Sukhodolskiy, has told representatives from the antiterrorist
    department of China's Public Security Ministry at a meeting.

    The Chinese delegation, which arrived in Russia at the invitation of
    Russian Interior Minister Army-Gen Rashid Nurgaliyev, attended a
    number of events. In particular, they participated as observers in an
    antiterrorist command-staff exercise held in the Southern Federal
    District by the forces of the Russian Interior Ministry.

    Afterwards the observers from China took part in tactical exercises at
    which officers practised the use of forces and assets of the federal
    executive authorities to free hostages and prevent the hijacking of an
    airliner seized by a bandit group.

    Then the Chinese delegation went to the Daryal range in the Republic
    of North Ossetia - Alania, where a tactical specialist exercise was
    held to deal with bandit formations that had broken through the state
    border. The forces and assets of the group of operational command,
    according to the scenario, searched an area near the border, found
    terrorists and destroyed them, thus foiling a terrorist act involving
    sabotage at a water infrastructure facility.

    According to Sukhodolskiy, the participation of foreign specialists in
    antiterrorist exercises by Russian law-enforcement agencies is not
    uncommon. "Last year we met specialists from Austria, Armenia and
    Belarus," Sukhodolskiy stressed.

    He noted that experience is constantly being exchanged with foreign
    special subunits. During these meetings, all forms and methods of
    foreign colleagues' work are studied and their positive aspects are
    introduced into the daily activities of the groups of special forces
    of the police.
