    I definitely won’t run. I have enough of my abilities to walk in the taiga on the “flippers”. I advise them not to follow the beaten paths, but in our north Yenisei. I will not say anything about Baikal. They won’t.

    “the longest route of more than 1300 km will be with the command of paratroopers from Novorossiysk, and the team from Tula will have to overcome the most difficult sections on the route”.

        In my time at the school, the standard transition to the Selce training center was approximately 55 - 60 went out from Saturday to Sunday at night for 9 and a half of 10, a week later they returned to Ryazan and so once a month. In winter, skiing the old army from plywood, while arms and equipment (taxiway, ozk, commander’s bag with notes, bedding or sleeping bags, a bowler hat and so on trifles) they dragged on themselves. 118 RVVDKU issue, I have the honor !!! And on November 13, only 100 years will be fulfilled. So 100 km light and plastic skiing per day is not a problem for cadets.

And so (I’m standing on the asphalt, I’m shod in skis, they don’t go skiing, I’m roofing .........). !!! Sincerely.

          well, it’s supposed so, the authorities have nothing to do with it, “the party said it’s necessary, the Komsomol replied, it is!” - it always works, in one interpretation or another.
