Russia has redeployed Iskander-M missile systems to the drills in Kyrgyzstan. RIA Novosti reported.

Iskander-M operational and tactical missile systems were for the first time redeployed from the Urals to Kyrgyzstan to participate in the joint anti-terrorist exercises of the security agencies of the CIS member states Issyk-Kul Antiterror 2018.

During the drills, the missile men will perform combat launch at the base camp of conditional terrorists at Edelweiss mountain range.
