Here is a new collection of photos of life in army, some of them are sort of provoking a smile, proving that the life there isn’t always dull and serious.
Here soldiers play road police and drivers.
Hard to understand the idea behind this ritual
When soldier is being found with a phone during his service time he is sometimes forced to wear a wooden phone as a punishment.
It can even be that big.
However in their rest time they can use phones and here how the typical army charging station looks like (when they built barracks in soviet era they didn’t know there would be that much need for electric outlets in 21st century).
Another form of punishment wearing a heavy metal weight all the day.
Gas masks are a constant source of fun.
Can be also used to drink tea
Or just to make cool photos
“There is no such place where the soldier couldn’t sleep” – soldiers sort of always lacking sleep and easily sleep in any position especially during marches .
Yet another example of the above said.
100 days left till the discharge
It’s a popular number – 100 days till discharge
“20 days till discharge, one cigarette per each day and you are home”
“I will come home soon”
It’s all because army is compulsory in Russia so they sort of go there not on their own will and wait to be discharged. The term of service in 2018 is one year (it was two years during USSR)
An Ukrainian soldier after discharge – they (in Russia too) sometimes make such colorful decorations using often white strings to their uniform
One more example of decoration
And more , now a Russian soldier in his parade outfit celebrating coming home from the army
And this is a Russia NAVY sailor getting home
And this one is from Kazakhstan discharge outfit – all ex-USSR countries have same roots.
DMB which stands for Demobilisation or discharge from the army – cookies now
And cakes – featuring a Voenniy Bilet – “military ticket” – a special id (red on the right) which shows you have served.
Here is another “military ticket Iphone cover and passport cover” – so everyone can know u served
