One Day of the Recruit Who Voluntarily Joined The Belorussian Army

Posted on November 20, 2012 by team


These guys are standing in the dark, at seven o’clock in the morning. They are all recruits. Soon they will have to farewell with their parents, relatives, friends, girlfriends and civilian life. Some of them will serve one year, others a year and a half.

We are going to show you now what the Belorussian army begins with.

7:30. Misha is 20, he is from Minsk. As well as other guys he is in the military office building. They are not allowed to leave for a smoke. Though, Misha doesn’t smoke. His father once told him he would cut his lips off if he smokes.

8:00. The recruits are half asleep. Now they should be examined. Everyone seems to be healthy. They are advised to serve honestly and told they could occupy good positions after the army.

    Looks like their military receiving is a little easier than the US Marines. They didn’t seem to have people shouting at them from the moment they got on the bus. Maybe they wait on that until the second day.

      How long is US Marines training? 12 weeks? They have it for 1.5 YEARS.

      • tanksoldier says:

        Minimum enlistment is, I believe, 3 years. There are occasionally 2 year enlistments but that time starts AFTER training is complete, so for some MOSs you end up with almost 3 years anyway.

    Good pictures. Like to see this turn into a weekly update! :)

    Seems quite nice, How does the company affectation work, if there is nobody wanting to go in reccon or whatever ? The girl in the 3rd pic is quite hot, hope them guys can see her during the service :D

    Something’s wrong here; there are no pictures of DI’s screaming into the new recruits faces.

    …I’m sensing there might be a difference between the way we do thongs and the way other countries do it. I think I like our way better.

  6. Lotto says:

    Uniforms are supposed to be uniform, not to differ in appearance even within the regular army groups.

  7. Mummeli says:

    I’ve seen quite a few videos of the ‘first day in the army’ from different countries – so yeah, based on those videos..blame me, i dont know better – only one that had the ‘screaming DI’ was the US one.

    On a side note, do US DI’s get a sick leave if they loose their voice, or get reprimanded?

  8. Alex says:

    How can I contact this woman to have children with her?

  9. Ross says:

    Neck tatts are so bogan.

  10. Yondi says:

    Ah, yes. It is necessary to be stripped down to the underwear when seeing the optometrist, dentist, and shrink.

    • tanksoldier says:

      It’s part of the training process… the point being what they want is irrelevant and what the Arny wants gets done… and it IS more efficient than having people dress and undress various parts of their anatomy all day long.

    My god they have it easy, when I joined the Royal Air Force the day we started our basic training we were made to stand on the train from RAF Cardington to RAF Bridgnorth 120mls, even though there were seats. Uniform!! we were told if it fits you your deformed. During gas warfare training, we were told to line up and run through like good Jewish people. Unbeknown to the instructor one chap was Jewish. The barrack room had been trashed by the outgoing troop, they did this on the instructions of the DI. Mud all over the walls as well as coal and cinders trodden into the floor, then we had an inspection at 06:00hrs in the morning. And it didn’t stop there.
