Krapovye berets

1
From May 31 to June 1, in the training center of the internal troops “Volovshchina” near Minsk, they were tested for the right to wear the Krapovoi beret, which, according to the tradition established since Soviet times, is a symbol of special forces units. Krapovye berets should be worn only to those who passed the corresponding multi-stage exam and "deserve this right in their professional, physical and moral qualities." In Belarus, similar tests are taking place with the 1993 year. This year, 92 troops of the Interior Ministry troops took part in them. Berets of them got 12.
