Training sessions with the territorial defense have been held in 8 districts of Minsk, Brest, Homiel and Hrodna regions
From August 22 to September 14, a training session with the territorial defense will be held in the Polatsk district. This conclusion can be drawn based on the analysis of the data of public procurement, which was conducted by the Polatsk District Executive Committee in July-August of this year.
For example, on August 4, a tender for bathing services for conscripts was published. Based on the terms of the tender, the contractor needs to provide bathing for at least 120 people. From this we can conclude that at least 120 reservists are to be drafted to the training session.
