    It’s high time to put combat training at the forefront rather than a “retreat approach”!

    This is an example of healthy competition with the Chechens. During the Chechen war, they fought with each other, there is also rivalry among draftees. Finally, a normal rivalry appeared - the combat training of the fighters, from which the Russian army would only benefit.

    I think that such a competition will cause more interest in Chechnya than football. It is clear that Chechnya will root for its own people. The motivation of the contract Chechens is greater - they cannot be dishonored in front of relatives.

      And there are no others there, because there is no motivation to come to serve from other regions - the "soldiers" were removed, and sitting on a private contract soldier for 17 thousand rubles in a hostel under the supervision of fathers-commanders is painlessly depressing. At us and in Novocherkassk packs are fired, and even more so from there.

    So what do you see in the photo? I personally see a curved-armed soldier left-handed, filling up a machine gun from the horizon, and even closing his right eye. Still the second screwed up .. This "bad luck in the helmet" is the direct fault of the platoon and company commander. The machine gunner is the most important component of the fire support of the unit. To give such a weapon to crooked hands ...? Where are the commanders looking? Or upload normal photos.
