  1. A higher proportion of muslim to Russian Orthodox than I would anticipate, since I would assume that they are still very much a minority. The cleric that is second from the left in the outside shot looks different than the other Muslims. Shi’ite muslim maybe?

  2. In finnish army we call these guys the “anti-devil” corps.

    HA HA– that’s good.

    I wonder there are more Muslims in the army than you would expect, for the same reason there are more blacks and hispanics in the US army than in the general population– more opportunites in the army, guaranteed employment, learn skills. I assume most Muslims in Russia are generally from the non-slavic ethnicities, are they also at the bottom of the economic ladder in Russia?

  3. Dont know about the US, but in Russia we have ethnic and religious communities spread over a huge space of land, so it is possible for them not to mix up too much, so you have catholics to the west, orthodox church in central Russia, muslims in southern republics, buddhists on far south-east, and even the Jewish autonomous district (VERY far away to the east, not far from Korea). There are even pagan natives in the north Syberia. Because of that, you can have a conscripts and professional soldiers with very different beliefs.
    And I wouldnt` say that muslims have less wealth than people of other religion. In fact, I believe their communities are more prosperous – because of mutual aid and specific muslim “banks”.

    • “…In fact, I believe their communities are more prosperous – because of mutual aid and specific muslim “banks”.”

      Muslims do not drink alcohol, whereas Russian Christian men destroy their health & wealth through Vodka. This alone makes a big difference in the end game.

  4. “and don’t quarrel – a real unity of Islam and Christianity.”

    And THAT is some real progress by a country that hasn’t made much lately.
