This guy served as a ladder to the whole group.
The distance from barracks to the firing ground is 18 km. Thus overcoming this separation soldiers imrove their endurance.
This year there 25 graduates from military academies.
The brigade choose the strongest and helthiest young men.
About 30% of servicemen have academic qualifications.
A monument to the fallen brigade’s soldiers.
A monument to all men who died in Afghanistan and Chechnya was opened on June 8, 2007
In 2003 the brigade was dislocated to the former radioprotection academy in Tambov. Some auditoria were converted to living rooms. Today almost every officer has an accommodation. There are two 3-storey buildings for families and a hostel for bachelors where basically young officers live. But it also possible to rent an apartment in the town. Soldiers live in barracks.
The main problem is that the whole complex is too old, so it needs repairing. Thus occurs 2 question – where to get money and where to settle the soldiers. For example, 6 people died in the fire of 2009 in one of the old buildings. It was caused by the short circuit. There is no use repairing the building. The strength of the structure is up in the air. Thus the brigade has no club and meeting hall.
Civil catering organisations takes care about soldiers’ food. But if somebody want to have a snack – welcome to cafeteria.
Soldiers can pay for the bills right here in barracks.
In conclusion we’d like to congratulate the brigade with Special Forces Day which is celebrated on October, 24. Wish you all the best!
