    I don't see how Your friends in Moldova are relevant to this at all. Maybe they are Russian peacekeepers serving in Transnistria?
    Same if I would ask some Mexicans to help me join USAF.

    I really doubt You would be allowed to join Russian army with Your oath to USA. It's nothing to do with politics.

    I'm sure if those guys will push their luck against this newbie it will be simple arithmetic - "1 zvonok - 4 dzypa - 16 kentov - 32 pereloma".
    I personally lived with this crap from childhood and I think punching the nose is the best way. It's not like we are all evil or something.

    They are not kids, and act like jackals. Nothing of value would be lost if they all pissed off, lets be honest.
    What if during one of the episodes of them attacking someone they cause a serious injury? It is possible.
    This ain't the streets.

    Plus, lets look at it this way. Dedovchina directly influences capability of army to be an effective fighting force (in training, desire of pop to be in the army, etc etc)..no different from sabotage of material stock. Punishment should be accordingly severe.

    Not saying it's good - but landmine remark is over the top. Disciplinary action is enough.
    Army is an institution and not streets as You said. Better control, CCTVs, more activities in free time help to minimize such things.
    Kontraktchiki don't have dedovschina at all. Extortion of money and similar things happened in professional service, but victims have more power to defend legally or they can just quit the service.

    Yes, start lifting weights and training in some form of martial arts like Sambo or a combination of Muay Thai/BJJ. It's good advice for anyone. At your age you can put on a solid 15 pounds of muscle a year. At 6'1" you want to be at least a solid 200 pounds and up to 220 would be ideal.

    I know that this thread has been dead for a little time, but is it also possible to come to serve from any countries, that have some historical hate towards each other?

    I don't think there is any higher difficulty because of country of origin.
    It is just generally hard for non citizens to join.

    When there is a will there is always a way. However, dreaming of joining the Russian army when you have put zero effort into learning the language, have never even taken a trip to Russia, and can't tell Pushkin from Gogol means you are not serious.

    Yes is totally possible..

    http://rt.com/politics/russian-army-welcomes-foreigners/

    Russia have a program for foreigners to join their army. As long you learn Russia..and Show Interest ,don't see any reason
    why you will not enter even if come from any US or NATO country. For sure you will be tested . But if you are dedicated
    and determined to proof that you belong to that place ,you can enter in any place ,even if your not supposed to be there.

    It will not be like Top Gun or An Officer and a Gentleman... you will have to work your backside off to get any respect from your tutors who will probably not really understand your motives and likely just suspect you are part of a CIA plot to infiltrate the Russian military.

    Don't expect to get into a VDV unit, or Strategic Rocket Forces.

    Also expect some fairly serious questions from your own government if you return.

    Serving In A Foreign Military

    Post  calripson on Fri Jan 10, 2014 7:08 pm

    I don't know the legality of serving in a foreign military. The only country I know that Americans routinely serve in their military and that certainly doesn't harm their careers is Israel but that speaks more to the political force of the Israel lobby in the USA. For example, holding dual citizenship in America used to be illegal, but Jewish Americans had the rules changed to allow dual citizenship so they could hold Israeli/US citizenship. Now anybody can hold multiple citizenships.

    Can you read, write, and speak fluent Russian?

    What Russian blood relatives do you have... parent, grandparent etc.

    You main problem is trust... they might think you will turn on them or are a spy... your best bet would be to move there and live and work there for a bit and then apply for citizenship...

    there are a few threads here with foreigners wanting to join the Russian Army... might be worth a read.
