"We have been working hard, intensely for a week already. I believe that these exercises provide a lot of useful things in every sense”, said the Head of the Republic. “The work is done in all directions. Everybody get disciplined, show responsible approach to work. This is the main task of the exercises. I hope that in the end the result will be positive".
Rustem Khamitov noted that after the exercises a detailed analysis would be carried out marking strengths and weaknesses.
