One of the compulsory rituals, repeated over and over during a day, is doing the bed and cleaning the sleeping place. Distance from the towel to the bed post has to be of two-finger width.

An interesting fact: if a soldier is visited by his family on weekend, he may have a lot of free time with them. If he is not visited by anyone – he has 15 free minutes in 24 hours.

  1. Those beds are too close. You have to be kidding me. No wonder all the Russian kids run to the USA. Who’d want to be drafted and forced to bunk that close to another dude.

  2. Like some guy is going to have his way with your fanny just because you sleep close.

    People like you really shouldn’t flatter themselves.

  3. Wonder why they don’t spread the beds more apart, and have the soldiers sleep alternating heads and feet? That would make it harder to spread airborne diseases. I’m sure the facilities aren’t bad for Russia, but wouldn’t meet US military standards.

  4. Haha! Go to the army and you’ll see that “sleeping too close” to you’re mates isn’t your biggest problem. Bloody hell, what is this, some tea-party by teenage girls?

    Near to finnish-russian border there is a barrack in russia where they train conscripts. There, floor is ground. Your’s Hello Kitty-sandals might get dirty.
