Russian Airborne Troops Ride Dog Sledges in Extreme North

9

Russian airborne troops had a drill in the Arctic using dogs and skis. They are training to travel up to 80 km daily by dog sleds, calling a 15 minutes halt every hour. The weight of the loaded dog-sledge exceeded 200 kg. All the dogs weighed at least twenty-five kilograms.
