Russia seeks an agreement with Switzerland which would allow Russia to send soldiers for mountain training in the Swiss Alps, RIA Novosti reports. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has approved a draft agreement, proposed by the country’s defence ministry, foreseeing joint exercises and conferences with Switzerland. Putin instructed the Ministry of Defence and the Foreign Ministry to begin negotiations with their Swiss counterparts on the agreement. Russia has had two mountain infantry brigades stationed in its volatile North Caucasus region since 2007.
