    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.

    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 6:08 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.

    Hello, I am a british male and am considering joining the VDV. Is this possible? Or will I have to join a different regiment until I get citizenship? Also what happens during the medical? I have a mild scoliosis (curvature of the spine) in the lumbar region. It is just mild, and doesn't cause any back pain or anything. Got full range of motion. Thank you

    AFAIK, you have to be a Russian citizen.

    Going by the interest of foreigners about joining the Russian Army in this forum, maybe Russia should form a Foreign Legion.

    THis.. says nothing about russian citizen.. but you need to learn Russian at least.. no education need..and you can qualify for Russian citizenship after 3 years of service


    The Russian Army is looking for a few good men (and women), but only if you speak Russian and don’t mind having your fingerprints taken. And of course, don’t mind a bit of adventure.   Сlick to enlarge Due to various factors, not least of all Russia’s demographic situation, the Russian Armed Forces are looking to foreigners to help fill their ranks.  "Foreign nationals, between the ages of 18 and 30, applying to serve in the Russian Armed Forces, must speak Russian language," says a draft decree on the new rules for Army service, posted on the Russian Defense Ministry's website.  All qualified applicants will also be required to have their fingerprints on file with the Ministry of Defense.  Unlike Russian citizens, however, who join the military as soldiers, sailors, sergeants or first sergeants after signing a three-year contract, foreign nationals must agree to serve for no less than five years.  Foreign enlistees, however, will not be required to have Russian passports or produce a diploma or other certificate confirming their level of education.  As far as having to take a military oath, that requirement too has been eased for foreign nationals.  "They will not take the military oath and will only sign a contract pledging themselves to abide by the Russian Constitution and to unconditionally fulfill their commanders' orders," Interfax-AVN reported, quoting an anonymous Defense Ministry source.  Aside from having an opportunity to do a bit of travelling, as well getting into shape, service in the Russian military for foreigners comes with some other perks, including the right to become a full-fledged, passport-carrying Russian citizen.  "Foreign nationals serving in the Russian Armed Forces will have the right to apply for Russian citizenship after three years of service," the source said.

    Well I doubt that scoliosis will go unnoticed in medkom. It depends what angle it is.
    You might not be able to join VDV because of nature of their service. Para drops with full combat gear and bags won't help Your back that's for sure.
    If You are real opportunist then good luck! Chance it. I know a guy who served in Russian army in late 90ies and he had breathing problems and was flatfooted.

    Hey buddy thank you for considering joining the Russian army but you cannot join VDV until you are a citizen unless you go talk with a embassy (Russian) near you they will give you a contract and after 3 years of service you will be granted citizenship. But you must qualify and be able to speak Russian and I don't think you will be assigned to the VDV but try your luck. And explain to the embassy you want to join the VDV specifically.

    Thank you everyone for the replies, I expected a lot of hate telling me to stop playing video games or whatever... which I don't just to clarify. My scoliosis is 24 degrees, considered mild by the doctor, but the reason I wanted to join VDV is because I want to be the best of the best, and I want the most adventure, and of course to see action. I will be willing to join the russian army and get citizenship after 3 years, but honestly what do you think my chances are, after getting citizenship to join the VDV and a while after that possibly spetsnaz? I want to be elite, will I maybe have a better chance if i joined the navy/marines and then going into a spetsnaz unit after serving maybe 7-10 years? Thank you everyone!

    Also, how hard is it to join the russian army? I don't mean physically, but i mean in general. I mean learning russian will be hard for me but i'll do it, then going all the way to russia, then after all that I don't want to apply then get rejected? How likely is it that the russian army or marines will take me?

    I was reading that there is a growing number of foreigners wanting to join the Russian Military.

    Anyway, they are looking at moving to a contract based military, which would mean better pay and better living style. Unfortunately, I do not know the requirements for that. You can be conscripted at least or join in early stages, but Flaming Python knows more about that and from my understanding, pay sucks and so does the food/living style. If you can get in a better district, than it would mean better pay and better living/food.

    How hard is it? I have no idea. Python knows that though (or at least I hope he does).
