Emotions mostly overwhelm those who stayed behind the scenes, watching what is happening. As in most similar cases, the audience expresses itself through the mat - apparently, it was impossible to convey all the power of impressions in any other way.
However, people who do not know the Russian language, do not stint on emotions. "This is, damn it, Russian Terminator!" - the user who posted it under the nickname GIXXARDR writes admiringly in the title to the video. And he explains: "A Russian soldier is being pulled out a bullet (shrapnel?) From his forehead in 2000 ... lucky son of a bitch!"
It is unknown how this entry was made available to the user from Melbourne, Australia. In the six days since its publication, she scored on LiveLeak.com about 150 thousands of views, more than 40 thousands of other users dragged it from their blogs and other resources.
Among those who hit the movie, was the British newspaper The Daily Mail. Based on the date of the recording, the publication assumes that it was conducted during the Second Chechen War.
The video begins with a close-up view of the upper part of the wounded soldier’s face. Slightly above the eyebrows and just between them a rather small piece of metal stuck rather deeply sticking out. The soldier’s comrade (only his hands are visible in the frame) handles the wound with something (it looks like iodine in color), after which he tries to pull the metal out with ordinary pliers.
This fails immediately, several times have to change position. "Operated" during the procedure, only slightly frowns and shares: "It does not hurt at all. The skin seems to be pulling and that's all." At the same time, one of the observers behind the scenes laughs, and someone reasons in which direction it is better to pull - in general, nobody shows serious alarm. And one, inspired, generally offers a "doctor": "Let me try."
The soldier is asked whether the bone hurts, to which he responds negatively. When at last the extraneous subject manages to be taken from the wound, one of the spectators (and, possibly, the operator, since his voice is heard louder than the others) admiringly draws: "** your mother!"
The soldier, too, is noticeably pleased with the successful denouement. The operator asks him to turn to the camera, which he does - with a gaping wound on his forehead and a radiant smile on his face.
Western users, like the British newspaper, are admired by the "calm and courage" with which the soldier endures at least an unpleasant procedure.
And on the Militaryphotos.net forum they ironically explain: equanimity is the usual state of the people of Russia. In support of this thought, one of the participants cited another video from YouTube, entitled: "Krasnoufimsk. A bear climbs a peasant on a birch tree."
“Well, that's it, f ***** the peasant,” the operator states at the other end of the street, observing this scene. And then, with a laugh, he asks himself: "Will you get it?" Then, as if nothing special is happening, he begins to take pictures of the surroundings and, having caught the hare sitting in the garden, focuses all his attention on him.
Another prankster from the forum publishes a photo of boxer Nikolai Valuev, who, with a gun in his hand, sprawled next to a dead bear. “Such things are not something unusual for Russia,” the English-speaking forumchan has fun. “For example, a bear tried — unsuccessfully — to overwhelm Valuev.”
