Sports are the most effective way to relieve the psycho-emotional stress of the Russian military at the Khmeimim airbase in Syria. On Sunday, November 22, Vladimir Dvoenko, assistant to the commander of the Russian group of forces in the SAR, told reporters about this.

According to him, all the necessary infrastructure has been created for sports training and games.

“Statistics are not kept, but the need for physical training classes at the base is increasing many times over,” Dvoenko noted.

He added that sports are gaining popularity among the military. For example, those who previously passed the physical training standards as “satisfactory” go to the sports campus at the base to improve their performance.

Among the regulars of the Khmeimim sports ground there is a candidate for master of sports in quadraathlon Major Rezvan Abiyev, who wants to master a new discipline – sport shooting.

“The closest thing is CrossFit. Functionality needs to be developed … run and jump and pull up. Because a person must always be ready for any situation, to act in any situation, ”the serviceman said.

It is noted that among the popular competitive sports in Khmeimim are volleyball and football. Famous athletes and champions often come here for friendly matches.
