The members of presidential reserves within the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration training were made to lie still under a moving APC, RBK reported.
The training included parachuting, firing assault rifles and handguns, throwing grenades and lying still under a moving APC. This training was conducted at Kubinka military training center on October 27. The candidates for governor positions not yet assigned to a region took part in the training.
Some of the future officials were not as sturdy as the others. Three candidates suffered leg injuries during parachuting, with another candidate injuring his back.
Training at the Kubinka training center is a requirement for assignment to the top official posts. The officials in training are to be tested in Malaysia and Singapore during the winter.
