From February 19 to 26 representatives of the Lithuanian Armed Forces, internal services, municipalities and local organisations were undergoing joint action training in the city of Alytus and the surrounding area. They were also able to familiarise with experience and skills of the U.S. Special Operations Forces personnel.
It was the first exercise of such character organised for the Lithuanian Special Operations Forces in a densely populated urban area. In the past such drills were held in a forested area or sparsely populated rural areas in Alytus District.
The exercise is completed according to a special scenario focusing on the establishment and maintenance of friendly relations with local community and collaboration with it.
