1911-a1, the woman (whom you call a kid ) is asking where some person is, since everyone has been waiting for him for some time. It's probably a party of some kind, since she says that they've got whiskey and want to begin, but this man just ain't coming for some reason
Can anyone wrap up his story for us who don't understand Russian?
Saved his squad during a compromising position in Ingushetia by drawing away enemy fire
Sustained 16 gunshot wounds
Partially and hopefully temporarily paralyzed
In good spirits, squadmates and wife are supporting him.
Received Hero of Russia medal, an apartment and a new car
Learning how to walk again
Doctors are giving no promises on whether he will walk but he is making slow progress
I heard them (the grown up, not the kid) say something about a "battalion" a bit earlier, but it isn't in the recording.
not a kid but a woman...
woman: kookoo (hey there)
woman: common hurry up! you've been walking for half an hour already
man: the whiskey is getting cold... (whisper)
man: I'm saying... the whiskey is getting cold... it's getting cold... the whiskey
woman: kookoo (hey there), kookoo (hey there)
woman: I've been waiting forever for you to come back from the car... you are there for like 40 minutes already
woman: it's not nice to go on a tour (of the premises I suppose) when five ppl are sitting here waiting for you
BTW, about Severodvinsk again. I've talked with North Fleet submariner officer recently, who said he was briefed in the boat, and while the guy couldn't say much, it seems that I definitely mixed up 677 and 885 boats -- there's apparently nothing wrong with the boat's sonar and looks like it was already tested (at least partially) on an other, experimental boat. So all is for the better, except that consensus among analysts is that 885 boats are a bit too big and expensive, and won't do to replace all the aging older boats, so there's the need for a smaller and cheaper one, kind of a Virginia-class analogue (Severodvinsk, Kazan etc being "Seawolfs").
