Shooting training was to take place only to the electronic target. After that, the reservists went to the training ground, where they didn't shoot anymore.
The man also complained, that he returned from the training ground with a skin disease. He claimed, that the conditions, where the reservists stayed, they were insulting. He praised the food.
The spokesman, however, denies these allegations 10. Armored Cavalry Brigade Lieutenant Agata Zawal. – They were assigned to the command post of the anti-aircraft squadron, that took place in the field. The conditions were as real as possible, they were a representation of the actual battlefield - she said.
“The training order did not include the firing of sidearms. Of course, the folding and unfolding of the tents most certainly took place, especially as the command post moves around, the tents have to be folded, and then spread them in another place - said the spokeswoman.
