YEKATERINBURG, August 31. /TASS/. Joint company tactical exercises with the participation of more than 500 servicemen of Russia and Kazakhstan started at the Kara-Haak training ground in the Republic of Tyva. This is stated in a message distributed on Tuesday by the press service of the Central Military District (CVO).
