Moscow: The first joint anti-terror exercise involving Russian and US forces in Colorado has ended with the "neutralisation" of a terrorist group, a Russian Defence Ministry spokesman said.

The entire operation took not more than seven minutes, said Colonel Alexander Kucherenko.

"The main trophy included important documents and a large sum of money designed to pay for terrorist activities, which were removed from the chief of the terrorist gang," he said.

The first ever joint Russia-US anti-terror military exercises on American soil were held at Fort Carson in Colorado from Tuesday through Thursday.

A special unit of Russian paratroopers worked alongside American land forces as part of the exercise.

The Russian and US special units engaged in joint gun practice as well as mountain training, parachute exercises and demolition techniques training.
