These people have been sent to North Caucasus for fifteen years. At the cost of their lives they stop bandits and terrorists.
The images you are about to see are exclusive. They were taken at the time of special operations by the special-purpose team from Moscow (usually it is a sniper who takes photos). We cannot show you their faces. Such operations are secret and no journalists are allowed.
By the way, this group is equipped and prepared better than others. The fighters of the group are constantly taking exercises being an elite of special forces. It’s hard to believe but their monthly earnings are only about 1300 dollars.
They tie white ribbons to see fighters from their own team in a battle.
Body of the armoured URAL – there is a crew cell under the canvas.
Lunch for fighters.
The dog is used to search after explosives.
Rock hammers are used for operations in the mountains.
The fighter is training a knife fighting technique. Yes, it’s a face of an enemy on the picture.
Going on-site. The fighter is holding a Kalashnikov gun of 100 series. Helmets with bullet-proof glass are bought by fighters themselves. The state provides helmets ZSH-2 to them, but they are too heavy and uncomfortable. Actually they have to buy many elements of equipment for their own money.
There are eighteen fighters in the group.
The group is getting ready to ambush.
The fighters are holding silenced submachineguns.
Looks beautiful, but danger may be hidden behind any small hill.
View from the ambush. They may wait in ambush from five hours to three days.
Preparation for a special operation.
Almost everything they wear is bought by them. The camouflage is American, only the fighter on the left has a Russian uniform on.
The area of operation is enclosed around the perimeter. Bad guys will not escape. The roads are being blocked.
This fighter, for example, bought absolutely everything he has for his own money.
Bandits refused to surrender and tried to oppose. The house was taken by storm, the bad guys were liquidated.
Bandits have to be examined because they hide grenades in their pants sometimes.
Just before flying to Moscow.
