    Sorry to continue this thread; but I was hoping if its possible to get information in regards to the physical fitness test(s) for the branch requirements; and possibly sticky it somewhere on the forum.


    I believe some info can be found earlier in the thread.

    Other than that this info is pretty widespread, but you'll need to formulate your inquiry in Russian for the search engines.

    I'm Scottish and been thinking about trying to join the Russian army. Mainly because I've always wanted to be in the army and I don't like the direction this country is going in at all and would love to get away. I think I might do 5 years in the French Foreign Legion first and then apply to the Russian army.

    I've read this thread and found out some good info but does anyone know what the situation currently is on this? Have many foreigners joined? Any from Western countries? Is it possible to get into a special forces unit and how long would it take?

    Any info on the current situation would be much appreciated.
