Let's see what it means to be a contract soldier of a motorized infantry located in Chechnya.
“Many officers and soldiers are given the title postmortem.” You mean posthumously.
And thats a BTR-80, not exactly “super” modern.
Look like this place is about to be abandoned since there is no people in the camp.
There is a confusion in translation here what is meant the term “contract solider”? In the west this would imply a person who is employed by a PMC which is in turn contracted with a government.I am going to assume that they either mean a conscripted(drafted) solider or a solider who has willing enlisted into the military and has signed a service contract which is what most western armed forces do.
Thats what tabbing is. There are green and red tabs. Green tabs are the men who are serving their first 12 months, which is mandatory. They are the conscripts. After 12 months most will leave, but some will stay on. In other words, they volunteer to serve. These are red-tabs.
Pity that Makarov just cant grasp that he commands the Russian, not Soviet army.
Would you, or could you, say the same thing about, the Palestinians under your beloved Jews? You do realise that when those same Jews were given a ‘home of their own’ it was by uprooting someone elses homes.
Age old BTRs,some outdated AKs and half a century old RPG 7 are the “most modern military hardware” ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
So i think,even today Russians don,t trust “caucasians” ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
This website has a striking contrast between cool photos and terrible wording. I mean not only some small translation mistakes or typos which are understood and okay; but the overall ignorance, the way the phrases are laid out and what is said makes me think sometimes the author is a scoolgirl or something.
Defenders? Yes, they must defend himself until they go back home. Why russian soldiers can’t stay in theyr own country?
Just so you know Chechnya and Ingushetia and the whole of North Caucasia are part of the Russian Federation. So they are in their own country.
On another note why does the US keep hundreds of thousands of troops on foreign soil, while its NATO allies attack sovereign nations.
You absolutly right, they are part of Russian Federation. But they are not Russia.
Also for example India was part of Great Britian and Africa was part of lot of colonial empires. Now those countrys are free. There was Republic of Ichkeria (Chechnya) and president Dudajev. Russians murdered Dudajev and destroyed republic. And what they get? – lot and lot people, who hates russians and russia. Now in Chechnia Kadõrov feels like king and against people is terror. Hurraa for Russian Federation and russian soldiers.
Erm. Russian Federation is the official name for all of Russia. Just like the United States of America is the official name of America.
The separatists attacked and killed Russians, and guess what they got? A hell of a lot of Russians who hate them.
BTW. Are you Chechen? Ingush? Ever been to North Caucasia? Ever been to Russia?
I’m guessing that the answers are all no. If not, my bad.
