Battle for Beret: Joining Russia’s Special Forces (RT Documentary)



Many young men dream of joining Russia’s Special Forces. However, for that to come true, they have to pass a series of incredibly tough endurance tests. There’s no room for failure. The slightest hesitation or poor mark and they’re disqualified. For most, running 11 kilometers in full military gear, under conditions similar to a real battle, would be unbearable. But for those battling for the right to wear the coveted crimson beret, this is just one of the trials that must be passed with flying colors. They also have to shoot accurately, storm buildings quickly and demonstrate outstanding combat skills. Throughout the grueling ordeal, the hardest challenge is to overcome themselves.

  1. The ‘West’ had better be careful about charging into ‘Green’ politics. Bankrupt Mother Russia and we have these blokes to contend with….Best policy is to help each other. Nordstream is a cool project.

  2. my question is why they beat the s*** out of that one boy and then they didn't beat the s*** out of the other one do y'all see something wrong with this picture they should all Bennett getting their asses beat like that first guy who got knocked the f*** out but because his skin color is different he got it worse

  3. I am an American… I couldn't give a single FUCK what our governments say. Governments will be governments, but as far as I am concerned, we are brothers. Soldiers are all brothers. I really wish our two governments would get along and better yet, become allies… Can anyone imagine America and Russia being allies? Talk about powerful…We would be completely unstoppable…. When I was young, I didn't have the health to become a professional soldier / commando, but always wanted to. The spirit is willing but the flesh was weak, as they say. Thank you for filming your training and sharing it with us on the internet. It is so interesting.

  4. Yes Russian SF are VERY tough but any soldier knows you can't win a large fight without the funding and equipment and unfortunately Russia just does not have a large enough military budget to compete with other world SF groups. That being said, I have no hate on the Russian soldiers I respect what they are able to accomplish on a meager budget, I wish we were allies instead of suspicious of each other.

  5. Get them beret's sorted! hahahah. Great soldiers though no doubt about that. Respect from England and ex forces. The comments on here show that all serving and ex servicemen are really all brothers no matter what the nationality. Russian special forces are excellent and well respected around the world.

  6. It's interesting how all the veteran soldiers are not anyone you might look at twice on the street. You know they can run for miles but you'd never guess just by their appearance. Also the positive and demonstrative comradery. But it made me smile when after getting his beret, the soldier knelt and crossed himself Orthodox style. I can't help but think it would make Lenin and Stalin roll over in their graves.

  7. Special Forces my arse. This is fucking amateur hour. They look and act like they're from a third world country. "Unsophisticated" doesn't begin to describe these idiots. Moronic meatheads. they don;t even know how to shape a beret. they look ridiculous!

  8. While are some of them wearing different camouflages than the others? I see that some wear a modern digital camo, while some others wear something else, and I noticed that there are some camos that seem to be from the 1970s or 1980s stripe camo
