30 Tweets of the Russian Soldier

Tweets of the Russian Soldier

Posted on November 12, 2012 by team


One guy volunteered to serve in the army himself. He was dreaming to shoot life in the army, beautifully describe it, maybe even make a movie. Others told him he was crazy, tried to deter him. But he, being 25, finally came to the military unit and became an airborne soldier.

Reality turned out to be different. Soldiers could not have anything their own: neither a professional camera, nor personality. The only thing he managed to have was a cheap snapshot camera which was often hidden almost in his pants.

So these photos do not belong to him, they are here to make the general impression.

Welcome to the Russian army as it is!

"We lay the table for the officers. There are twenty of them, twenty litres of vodka, fifteen soldiers are in the barracks. This night promises to be "fun".

"I am afraid to sleep next to the drunken mad people."

"They made us wake up twice, wanted to form us."

"Some heavy thing fell on the guy's hand. His two fingers are broken, two nails are pulled out. Officers are treating him with hydrogen peroxide".

"I am not at home yet, but not in the army already. I am somewhere in between. I am afraid of going crazy."

"I never shot for four months, but tore dandelions three times".

    Hardly the spirit that kept the fascists from overrunning Russia in every war since Napoleon, but as it will turn out, this is obviously a cheap propaganda stunt from the infected Soros western wannabee brats in Moscow.

  2. Mos Ilie says:

    Just like my self, in roumanian ( comunist ) army betwin 1974 – 1976 !

    Same compulsory shity-army service!

  3. Andrey says:

    Didn’t see any compromising photos. That’s the fact obviously.

  4. Daniel says:

    Any peacetime army is bad. Real soldiers pray for war. It kills off the scum and the real leaders emerge.

    • Emma says:

      Real soldiers do not pray for war, they want to defend their home country, they are patriots not crazy people who go tó the army because government pays for it (e.g. in U.S).
      Real leaders respect life!

  5. guest says:

    Why do the hats have Belarussian flags? And that guy’s jacket says Belarus. This is fiction.

  6. Otis R. Needleman says:

    If US officers acted like these Russian officers they’d find themselves kicked out of the service.

  7. Scrat335 says:

    Some of these photos are a decade old. The tweets are BS. Nothing matches the captions. Life in the Russian army is tough true, but then the Russian army is one of the toughest around.

  8. roofius says:

    fake

    story lies
    its fake and lies

  9. Dev says:

    the Russian soldier is frightened of only one thing…A USA Army soldier.

    • Bob says:

      And, uhhh… how did you come to this conclusion?

    • YJ says:

      You got that right.

    • Tiger says:

      Actually there was US military personell involved in the South-Ossetia conflict in 2008. An AFAIK it was the Americans and their Georgian junior partners running away from the Russians. They even found african-american´s dead bodies disguised in Georgian uniforms, but with their American ID cards.

    • mark alexander says:

      Dev dont be an idiot.
      The gear may be dire, but at times the Russian army has had some of the best units of all time.

    • Emma says:

      Major part of U.S soldiers are the poorest people in the society, army is just a way to get support for the family, but what happens after service?? U get home do not have any source of money anymore, poor rehabilitation is offered..depression occurs etc. Are u proud?

    • Alex says:

      Russian soldiers afraid of an USA Army soldier only in Hollywood movies.
      Russian soldier know that the USA Army soldier is weak in real combat.

  10. roofius says:

    its lies and fake
    cia and fbi lies

    • mark alexander says:

      Roofius dont be an idiot the USA dosent give a damn about Russia any more. Theyre too busy with the middle east.
      Its a heartbreaking article.

  11. mark alexander says:

    In Russia prime, a level of harsh treatment makes sense – if you have a truly massive conscription level. The logic being that of the tens of thousands of conscripts you are looking for the few gems among them who can be drafted into the heavy hitter units; then the conscripts go their on their way, and are of no further use.
    UK / USA SOF selection only tests a few hundred a year.
    The huge old USSR system could test tens of tens of thousands of men every year; resulting in hyper elite “tier zero” units like Vympel. In my opinion the old USSR special forces had some of the most amazing SOF men of all time, becuase the difficuly could be so high, and the intake so huge.
    And SOF unit is as good as its intake size, as a ratio of the pass rate.

  12. rod says:

    Hope you guys don’t have to fight anybody anytime soon. Sounds like you might defect to the other side.

    • vorontsevich says:

      Well. In 2008, things were a lot worse off than they are now, and they had to fight someone. Guess what, they won.

      Not to mention that before that, we fought another war (actually a series of wars) in the Kavkaz. Guess what, we won (eventually). Might wanna stop believing ER captions. In case you haven’t noticed, the captions don’t match anything in the pictures (in fact its mostly the complete opposite).

    It doesn’t surprise me in a Country that still worships mass-killer Stalin.
    Such duty service is nothing but an invitation to whole life of corruption.
    The wolves treat each other much better. I feel so sorry for these guys.

  15. Andrei says:

    A male is just cannon fodder so a cruel training for him is ok! A male has the duty to serve his Country in the best way. Pain and toil are very good for the male flesh. The Russian conscription is a good example for the other nations and dedovshchina is useful for young men, because women deserve real men. A woman deserves to have a beast well trained to her service. Stop criticizing the situation of male conscripts in the russian Army, we need to care about the women’s rights in Russia. I’m a male and I care about women, like every real man.

  16. US soldier says:

    OK, so if these soldiers are Russian, why are they wearing Belaruss flags on their berets? I think this article is fake or something very important is missing!!!

  17. animal88 says:

    These guys are very lucky! We males are beasts so we need to be trained like beasts!

  18. Antonio says:

    Respect! Eastern Armies are the best ones because they use to draft every boy and then to train him very cruelly, as cannon fodder. So every boy becomes a manly soldier for his Country. Every male should be trained as cannon fodder in the world, so I wish a similar draft in my Country too.

    • Alex says:

      Yes. Professional army is good for colonial wars with weak enemy.
      A conscript army is good for war with a powerful enemy to defeat him.
