Snow removal in Russian: “tank” instead of a bulldozer
In the Kuzbass, fighting vehicles brought down to combat the effects of snowfall
The heavy snowfall that hit the Kemerovo Region led to difficulties on the roads and other consequences, which had to be eliminated not only by public services, but also by the military.
According to Rossiyskaya Gazeta, referring to the press service of the Central Military District (CEC), in response to a call from the Kuzbass authorities, the commander of the troops, Colonel-General Vladimir Zarudnitsky, issued the appropriate order for snow removal. Already at the end of last week, more than ten units of engineering and automotive vehicles began work. Including seven trucks, a grader, two bulldozers and tankers of the Yurginsky military garrison.
Interestingly, to eliminate the effects of snow came out, including combat vehicles. For example, in Yurga, eyewitnesses caught BREM, an armored repair and recovery vehicle built on the chassis of a tank, for snow removal.It is possible that this is not the last case when military equipment is “chased” to snow removal. Indeed, according to weather forecasts, snowfall, rain and ice in the Kuzbass will continue until the New Year holidays.
