        But what about our first-raiders jumped in the winter before being conscripted into the Airborne Forces, and did not complain. Whether you want it or not, you should make three jumps.

          It is in such trainings that the skills of real specialists are developed, and the participation of Belarusian children is encouraging.

    Interesting news)
    We have a very long border in the Arctic ... these borders need to be well defended ... therefore, a mobile response to threats at any point is necessary ... Well, of course, this is the presence of the shortest path to such NATO countries as Canada ... loyal allies, assistant to the United States

      But imagine that Uncle Vasya (Margelov) sent his son to the tests in the landing in military equipment. And here even a dummy is scary to lay. And from Belarus, the guys from the brigade in which I started jumping were jumping on the ice floe, back in 1973 - they were also held at the parade in honor of the 70th anniversary of the Victory in Moscow last year.
