Reports that Russia's 58th Army has been put on a higher
Reports that Russia's 58th Army has been put on a higher combat alert are untrue, a Defense Ministry spokesman told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

The 58th Army saw action in Russia's military operation in South Ossetia, when troops were deployed in the region, following Georgia's attack on its former republic in August last year.

"An increase in combat readiness was not introduced earlier and does not exist at the present time," the spokesperson said, adding that Army units were undergoing routine training following winter drills.

The head of the press service for the North Caucasus Military District confirmed that troops from the 58th Army were preparing for training exercises, and stressed that security levels had not changed.

"At the current moment troops are involved in setting up a combat readiness plan. April sees the end of the winter training stage and planned controlled exercises at the conclusion of a period of instruction," Andrei Bobrun said.
