From 5 on 9 February, the special unit of the National Guard of the Republic of Cyprus conducted exercises in the Troodos mountain range. The purpose of the exercises was to prepare commandos for action in the harsh conditions of the Cyprian winter.
Special forces used equipment to climb and descend in the rocky terrain. The training program also included search and rescue operations and cross-country skiing. For those who do not know how to ski, the instructors conducted a training express course.
