When firing was over, the soldiers gathered in the forest to discuss their actions. After that it was time for making an ambush.

The soldiers made everything possible to hide the ambush and the enemies were destroyed.

Then decided to have a rest. They took off the wet clothes and wanted to wash in the river when suddenly they heard the sound of the grenade.

Everybody took the guns and departed as soon as possible.

They witnessed many terrible events in their life. They saw their friends dying and were themselves about to die.

  1. Yeah, are you SURE these are professional soldiers? They were using a Garmin eTrex Vista GPS device, the same I use. Good luck getting a signal with that thing when you REALLY need it. Basically, they’re only good on bright sunny days, out in the open. Any other time, and you may not be so lucky.

    I think these guys were just your average “Joe” (or “Joeski”).

  2. “At the head of the group was a soldier with a map, compass and GPS-navigator.”

    you must have meant “Glonass-navigator” right?

  3. F. Bunker here.

    They are some kind of police special forces no soldiers, they’re wearing milicija vests.

    Ya Bum Ya!

  4. The first group of photos seem to display a militia unit based on the stuff they’re wearing (one guy has it written on his back).

    The second set of photos taken in the snow show Spetsnaz soldiers, which are most assuredly elite troops by any measure.

    • Russian equipment looks old because it’s painted, not parkerized/phosphated like most American guns. Ammunition used in these photos is pretty standardized for the Russian military, so not sure what you’re talking about – 7.62x54r, 5.45×39, 9×39, and 9×18 Mak

  5. … could go to any gun-show in U.S. and pull together 200 guys w/ better equipment just by offering free beer. Not impressed with these yokels.

  6. These guys belong to a regular police rapid reaction unit (Russian equivalent ot SWAT). Regretfully, but they don’t look like – top-notch professionals – some are out of shape/overweight, others apply face-paint in a way that shows they don’t do that too often. But again, it is not their job. They job is to operate in urban environments mostly. And this training is probably intended to prepare them for a tour of duty in North Caucasian mountains.

  7. You gotta admit, unlike the Canadian and American military, the Russian military actually does defend freedom (or whatever passes for freedom in Russia) from an active enemy.

  8. Give me one week and I can scrounge up a bunch of civilians from the backwater that are better equipped than the crew in these photos.

    I really hope this is russian special ops, because they’ll be lucky to make it to the drop zone, let alone actually engage a target effectively.

  9. Also there are a lot of different camouflage texture types. Some fo them looks like the British DPM or US’ BDU. There is a digital one. And I’d swear that on pic 39 (p3) it’s German Flecktarn.
    As far as I know in Russia everybody has their own Spetsnaz except the Salvation Army and some may offer the liberty to their soldiers do decide what equipment they want to use but still… some of them look like quite ragtag.

    Also, any Drill Sergeant will start screaming at a zillion decibel after seeing this:

    I would.

    • Soviet/Russian camouflage often copied western designs. The Soviet version of “Woodland” camouflage is nearly indistinguishable from that of U.S., for example.

  10. Soldiers are trying to avoid black color in woods – when you will be wearing camouflage uniform, enemy can see black color easily.
    Now these clowns paint ALL face in black, and are wearing black tactical vests.
    Airsoft players have better equipment, and even when they just enjoying hobby with guns imitations, they’re not holding finger on trigger while not engaging enemy.

  11. page 3:

    “After that they clean their guns.”

    This is a rifle, this is a gun. This is for killing, this is for fun.

    “Targets are at the distance of 30-40 m

    The exercises were gradually growing harder and harder”

    I can’t imagine anything much harder than hitting a target at 30-40 m with a STAPLE gun.

  12. In “real situations”, all front-line soldiers are either drunk or high on hard drugs. I have read too many first-hand descriptions of Yugoslav Wars, Wars of USSR Succession etc. to believe otherwise.
