12 Lunch Time In the Army

Lunch Time In the Army

Posted on July 12, 2013 by team


We are going to inspect one of the army canteens of the Moscow region inside this post. Soldiers have never been served dainty dishes, besides, sometimes soldiers had to look for food by themselves. Hungry? Your problem! It had been typical for centuries in Italy, Sweden, France, Russia. The first person who began to change this situation was Peter the Great. For the first time in the history of all the Russian army soldiers began to be fed by civilian companies.

Indeed should a soldier spend hours in a kitchen? Nope. Today soldiers serve in the Russian army for one year only so it would be stupid to spend this time peeling potatoes!

This is the canteen we are about to visit right now.

The civilian company “Voentorg” feeds the soldiers here.

    Looks like they are having some pea soup with smoked ribs, very popular in Russia. Extremely tasty and nutritious, although by no means kosher. :(

    You can see that this army is becoming more Westernized. Whether these guys are as tough as the Red Army of 1941-45 remains to be seen.
    I guess nobody is as tough as that anymore.

    Only a year? Gee its not a very long time, it seems to me that you end up always behind training new guys and not keeping experience soldiers for a longer period of time. We don’t draft men into service in the US since 1974-75 it was hard going for a time, but its easier to train a soldier if he wants to be there if his own accord. The Russians have a different set of problems, that we do, you guys have a lot of territory to look after and not all of your neighbors been all that friendly over the years. Its got to be driving the leadership nuts at times. Now that chow hall looks very well run. Pickled cabbage, heck I would enlist for that alone if I was not approaching 60!

    The woman with the disposable gloves had them by her face which has made them unsanitary! The whole point of gloves is to protect people from your germs!

    “nobody eats them, sir” jejejjj

    Doesn’t look that great but apparently these soldiers like it. If they visited an average US forces dining hall those Russian troops would think they’d died and gone to heaven.

    Simple Russian food. USA soldiers eat like a prince in American mess halls. Huge salad bars…many choices of meat and tons of fruit and vegetables at all meals.

    I have spent many years in various army canteens, and they all look the same, except in Mother Russia with very GOOD looking personal and Docter. And where you do it for: It is a holy work to serve your country.

    “It is a holy work to serve your country.”…maybe, maybe not.
