International tournament of the best snipers is under way in the mountains of Almaty region. The traditional competition ‘Mergen’, which means a sniper from Kazakh language, is attended by the militaries that compete in pairs. Shooters work in close contact with a partner. The main aim of the competition is to work out a strategy of cooperation between the special forces of neighboring countries: Kazakhstan, Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. Within four days, the snipers will compete in accuracy and speed of reaction.

 

Kaiyrbek TOLESHEV, DEPUTY HEAD OF ‘ARYSTAN’ SERVICE, KAZAKH NATIONAL SECURITY COMMITTEE:

As you see, there is a unique training ground that is located at the level of 1,200 meters. As you know, tomorrow we will have a series of exercises that will take place on the plain stretching at about 700 meters. Therefore, there are large differences in elevation, which will be a sudden turn for snipers.
