This year's "Didgori" was distinguished by many novelties and diversity, including by the field components; reservists were called and trained in the field conditions; the units of Defence Forces and Ministry of Internal Affairs conducted the joint field exercise. New simulation systems VBS3 were also used for the first time in the training. Next year, the leaders of various agencies will actually take part in the training.
