Yesterday in the news there was a story about Russian soldier who was beaten to death by other soldiers while on the exam to get accepted to Special Forces service.
It comes out that they have a special tradition on those exams when the wannabe soldier have to face a few of Russian active service special force desperados for a given amount of minutes, and should not get down. I don’t know have the soldier in question got down or not, but he died as a result of the “exam”.
And here are some photos of those who were more fortunate than him and passed the exam.
