Military Training In Ossetia

A trial experimental course of soldier training planned to be introduced in Russia will help to decide whether it should be applied throughout the country or not. We’ll get a chance to evaluate it by visiting a motorized rifle brigade.

Though the period of service in the army was reduced to 1 year instead of 2, intensity of training was increased twice. Now soldiers will be trained 8 hours a day and have 6 busy days a week including Saturday. Their schedule includes weapons practice, physical training, march drill, intelligence and engineer training, etc.

The program still has some disadvantages. Officers have to cope with huge working load because they are not free even on Sundays getting prepared for the next week. Besides, length of conscription will have to be corrected so that recruits who are conscripted in May-June could start their training at the same time.

  1. Good to teach new troops in Ossetia, just some hundreds of kilometre to the south and they can start the work 🙂

  2. Judging from the photos that training of personnel have been established in conformity with the requirements of military regulations. It’s a pity this is not true for the whole army

  3. Tracked vehicles have attractive painted logs attached. In old days, we had to cut them ourselves.
    Many improvements in new army!

  4. That actually looks like fun. I would love to learn how to do what they do with those tanks. Fantastic guys, keep up the great work.

  5. Why are you all surprised by western sarcasm over Russia’s relationship with Georgia? Little Georgia seems to get much negative attention in Russia. Georgia has no missiles aimed at mighty Russia, it is not a threat to Russia, yet, you hate them so, such hard feelings. The problem in Russia is the centrally controlled media is about as non-partisan as FOX news. You do not get any kind of balanced journalism at all, and for a smart, literate people like Russians, this is a tragedy. Remember your history, remember Fyodor Dostoevsky, in a gulag because he told the truth. Time to move away from the state controlled media.

    • You’ve read Dostoyevsky? I like Gorky’s short stories better: grittier, more proletarian-friendly. Dostoyevsky was a liberal in his younger days but being put on the scaffold changed him.

      I think we cannot put ourselves in the Russian mindset when it comes to their feelings over Georgia. The U.S. has no analog in it’s history.
