12 Russian Defenders In Chechnya

Russian Defenders In Chechnya

Let’s see what it means to be a contract soldier of a motorized infantry located in Chechnya.

‘Our Russia has found itself!’

In spite of the fact that the majority of the contract soldiers come from Dagestan a small chapel was found nearby.

New appliances like these ones are arriving from time to time.

With the help of this appliance medical balloons can be filled with oxygen in field conditions.

Resuscitation ward is available as well. However, the implemented system has many shortcomings. Thus, not enough funds are provided for medicines. The military units also lack medical personnel. Now civilians who live nearby are hired as doctors and there is a shortage of medical specialists in the region.

The place is abundant with agitation signs. ‘Protection of Motherland is a duty and responsibility of every Russian citizen’, ‘The Caucasian battle, 1942-1943′.

The barrack is divided into blocks.

One can watch TV or read a book in the recreation room.

Weapon is stored nearby. One won’t have to run far in case of alert.

Signaling is never turned off. Its alarm sound can never be missed until the door is closed again.

There is a special sign on every weapon.

Athletic performance is very important here. Besides, salary of those soldiers who train much can be increased by 50%, 60%, 80%, 100%, 150%, 200% or even 300%.

The room is used for playing tennis.

A set of floor exercises, #1 and #2.

It is planned to rearrange the sports ground totally. Simulators will be left on the ground floor while the first floor will be used for performance of exercises.

The document includes instructions related to the following physical training exercises of the Russian Armed Forces: chinups, weightlifting, heaving exercises, bending and unbending arms on parallel bars, side straddle jump, etc.

Another barrack which is not different from the previous one much.

Many contract soldiers occupy 2- or 3-room apartment where 2 soldiers have to share one room.

‘Russian Military Mail. Beware of keeping official and military secrets while writing your letters. Distinct address will make delivery simple.’

Beside a big sporting ground for everyone, small sports complexes are available at every barrack.

This super-modern device is intended for radio translation. It also well-armed and completely safe.

Some garrisons also have museums in them. ‘Black Dogs of War’.

The museum is located next to the recreational room.


Billiard room.

Concert hall.

A monument to those participated in Chechnya conflict and awarded the title of Hero of the Russian Federation. Many officers and soldiers are given the title postmortem.

By the way, plastic cards are not accepted here. That’s why soldiers have to cash out with the help of such bank machines.

    “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.

  5. Verto says:

    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.

  7. UnderM says:

    Defenders? Yes, they must defend himself until they go back home. Why russian soldiers can’t stay in theyr own country?

    • ayaa says:

      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.

      • UnderM says:

        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.

        • ayaa says:

          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.

          • ayaa says:

            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.
