I would like to take a moment to remember the life and heroism of Lt Col Mark Yevtyukhin.
On this day in 2000 he was among 84 Russian Airborne soldiers killed on hill 776 in the Battle of Ulus Kert. His actions decimated a large body of al-Qaeda fighters, perhaps up to a thousand killed, under Saudi Jihadist warlord Ibn Al-Khattab. The Islamists were attempting to flee to the Pankisi Gorge in Georgia. Several key Jihadists had previously been based in, or traversed through, the Pankisi Gorge, including Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
Lt Col Yevtyukhin was a skillful and experienced commander, having served in Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and the collapse of Yugoslavia.
Today my thoughts reflect upon his life and heroism, his family, and those his soldiers.
Good call Scotus. A country must know it's heroes.

unknown vehicle with 152 gun
sorry for low quality
Twower latest report, 36th MotoStrelkovaya Brigada.
Once again, real reports from typical "new reform" units in Russia. These are not the shiny display units, but real field exercises. Of course it should be remembered he goes where the MOD sends him, but still, good stuff.
I would like to point out:
"Общался с солдатами. Реально радует, что все говорили о регулярных занятиях и учебе. Это вторая часть, из всех мною посещенных(первая - 393-я авиабаза), где солдаты сообщали, что проблем с кавказцами у них нет никаких. В части всего 70 солдат с Кавказа и единственное, чем они ярко запомнились, так это участием в самодеятельности(видеоролик смотрите ниже).
Кормит всех опять же гражданская организация, солдаты говорят, что питание хорошее. Телефоны можно иметь, но в будние дни они у командира роты, в выходные выдают без проблем."
They need to increase pay though, enticing people to serve will not work on the basis of better conditions/patriotism alone. Money will filter back into economy better than it ending up in Generals pockets anyways...
Also they still use the Rapira AT gun. Wow, old school, but the recoil on that thing is remarkably weak.
EDIT: Reason for recoil is they are using practice barell insert, large machine gun round, not a 100mm projectile.

If I am not mistaken, in 2012 officer and sargeant salaries are planned to increase significantly. This was also mentioned by twower himself, I believe. Hope it happens, surely the number of people wanting to serve will increase.
