Life of soldiers has changed a lot recently. Let us look at the changes by examining the living conditions of the 6th tank division.
Soldiers of the 6th tank division stay not in barracks but in a hostel that was repaired in 2007-2008 and faced complete reconstruction. There are hostels of two types. Some have one bathroom per floor, others have bathrooms in every room.
Soldiers spend their free time in the room. The poster on the wall shows the portrait of Russian Supreme Commander-in-Chief.
Small sports grounds are everywhere.
Clothes are usually washed in a laundry while it is the task of a soldier to take care about his soldierly.
The room is intended for 4 people.
The repairs were not very qualitative and some leakages can be found here and there. One building is not completed yet.
Food is provided by civil organizations.
Soldiers can choose among several dishes.
