    The day of Russia’s elite special forces, also known as the Spetsnaz, is marked on October 24

    Russian Special Forces Day, a professional holiday celebrating the nation’s elite special forces, also known as the Spetsnaz, is marked on October 24. The history of the country's special forces dates back to 1919, when special units were formed in Russia. These Spetsnaz units carry out missions during both wartime and peacetime, in emergencies nationwide and beyond. Currently, the Russian special forces include paramilitary units related to the Russian Security Service (the FSB), the Interior Ministry, the Defense Ministry, the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Justice Ministry and other federal bodies of state authority, which have their own code names, such as Alfa, Vityaz, Vympel and some other.

    Very interesting video with ФСБ operatives training with live ammunitions.

    Very interesting the confidence in the capabilities of the body armor and the kinetic shields employed in the action.

    Hahahaha, now I can appreciate the commitment to safety in training, but if you listened to this video you would think the Russians are crazy and the Americans are so sensible...

    In the 1990s the Americans came up with new non lethal technology that they could use instead of bullets to stop very angry or agitated people even if they were drunk or drugged up... one of those technologies was a foam that rapidly expanded and the solidified... completely immobilising the target... great... but this stuff was really really hard to get off and if you sprayed it in their face and they are moving around and struggling that is a serious possibility you could seal up their nose and mouth and they would suffocate before you could actually do anything about it... not so non lethal any more.

    Obviously safety in training is important, but these guys need to be able to do their job and this is their job... getting jostled and shot at... but as usual the Americans think they know everything and that the way they do things is right therefore every one else who does it differently must be wrong...
