"Nobody took off the berets": The Rosgvardia called the incident on the test "emotions"
The Rosgvardia denied the removal of maroon berets by fighters of special units during a test conducted in the Stavropol Territory. At the same time, the official representative of the department called the fight "emotions".
The Rosgvardia commented on the information that appeared in the media about the fight that took place between the special forces soldiers when passing the exam for the maroon beret in the Stavropol Territory. According to Valery Gribakin, who is the official representative of the department, the scuffle with the participation of fighters from the 604th Vityaz special forces center and fighters from other units happened "because of emotions." At the same time, none of the fighters refused the maroon berets and did not take them off.
Gribakin said that he was very surprised news about berets, since fighters who have earned the right to wear a maroon beret do not take it off even in front of the enemy, and then they disagree with the results of the competition.
- said the official representative of the Russian Guard.
According to the media, the conflict between the soldiers of the 604th Vityaz special forces center and the soldiers from other units took place on October 17 at the Tambukan training center in the Stavropol Territory when passing the exam for the maroon beret. Several competitors from the Chechen Republic were allegedly given a lift while others marched for miles. This fact angered the Vityaz fighters, after which a fight ensued, which was quickly extinguished.
According to other information, the incident took place during the tests for the maroon beret in Grozny, where instructors from "Vityaz" came to take an exam from local special forces soldiers. During the exam, several fighters were allegedly brought up in cars.
Which of the options is correct is still unclear, but it can be argued for sure that seven fighters of the Rosgvardia units from Chechnya received the right to wear a maroon beret. As the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, wrote on his VKontakte page, today 43 krapoviks are serving in special forces in the Chechen Republic.
