The red beret is the pride of each special squad soldier. They treat it as a decoration for their services in battle. Not everybody is strong enough and has enough endurance to pass a test to receive it. Usually, they have to make 5-6 tries to deserve a red beret and those who manage to do it in one try are considered true heroes.
Below are some photographs of a special squad unit taking a test for the red beret in the Krasnodar Territory.
