The British edition of the Daily Mail told about the tests of the soldiers of the Russian special forces of the Federal Penitentiary Service for the right to wear a maroon beret. Readers left a number of comments in which they admired the level of their training.
The tabloid published pictures and noted that the competition consists of a physical fitness test, during which the fighters must make a cross-country run in full gear, go through water bodies and “minefields”. All this is accompanied by a psychological test, as observers and instructors create certain obstacles.
At the end, the soldiers must fight with the owners of the maroon beret.
The British admired the Russian fighters going through such difficult tests.
“It’s better not to mess with the Russians. When they run out of ammo, they will sweep you even in hand-to-hand combat, ”wrote a user with the nickname HRH Made in Cardiff.
“These guys are not kidding,” says Yabba_Dabba_Dooo.
“This is why the whole world is afraid of them,” said Speak4myown.
“If there is a war, I hope Russia will be on our side,” wrote Moonbeem.
Last year, the publication also covered the training of FSIN fighters, readers also expressed their opinion about the tests.
