Today, the Minister of Defence, Aleksandar Vulin, attended the training of the "Griffins" Special Operations Battalion at the “Kajtasovo” lock near Banatska Palanka.
Members of the 72nd Special Operations Brigade also showed how valuable they are during the fight against Covid 19, the Minister of Defence pointed out.
— Just as they distinguished themselves during the fight against Covid, for which I sincerely thank them, so they also showed that their return to the barracks, to everyday life, happened very quickly and without any problems. They have already started drills, continuing their daily preparations and training, and they show that the 72nd Special Operations Brigade has no reason to be ashamed when compared to any other special unit in the world — the Minister of Defence pointed out and added that they are equipped with the most modern weapons, the best and the latest equipment, and that the entire Serbian Armed Forces can be proud of the quality of these people.
The landing of divers from aircraft and boats on the water, the landing using the rapid descent technique and carrying out an assault on river traffic facilities, as well as waterway evacuation, are the activities that were shown during today's training.
