We've got many posts about Russian army. However, someone believes that the propaganda of strong Russia on federal channels often differs radically from the actual situation. While other countries hide their real power, Russia (in the absence of any) shows off all more or less embodied projects. Just recently the invention of a new plane was accompanied by a colorful show with a fanfare - an event for the country... but seems to be a mockery for the whole world.
So let's look through the eyes of a casual observer how looks a prestigious military unit in the small town of Gvardeisky. That is so to say the starting point of a recruit on his way to becoming a defender of the Motherland...
1. A training unit "Landysh" ("Lily of the valley"). The place from where Russia dictates its indomitable will to the rest of the world community.
2. The parade ground. Soldiers are dressed like a gang of makhnovists. Trendy camouflage loses its color after 2-3 washes and becomes like dirty khaki smeared in oil.
3. Commanders. According to one soldier, these ones are good. But there is some major in the unit who is a big fan of slot machines and who regularly steals the soldiers' cellphones.
