    In Valdivostok, Marines demonstrated what they can do. The Airborne, the Marines biggest rivals, may be tough as nails, can one of them carry a table with his teeth

    lol

    Airborne Troops Day is in 2 days, on August 2nd. I suppose they will now try to outdo the Marines. hehe

    Anyway, some more pics.

    At Petropavlovsky beach, in Saint Petersburg, Marine special forces troops of the Baltic Fleet staged show-off training exercises. A truly Russian image

    No one looks good in horizontal stripes.

    Suprisingly a number of the girls look pretty good. Must be that the pics are from that part of Russia that has been influenced by good Europeans such as Balts and Fins and other scandavaions. What is "news worthy" of this "story" ? Russia like a good number of countries have a navy and within that navy have what some nations call "sea borne or naval inventry which we in the USA call MARINES as do our good allies the Brits. So besides thatone chick showing some skin what's you point ?

    Oh stop it Rain !! Be nice the Moskaliy's!! Some of those Moskaliy' actual would like to be European but they have been brainwashed for too many centuries and that has just about made them too far Eastern in thinking and behaving.

    PS Isn't it funny how we used to dress our criminals in stripes !!!!! The old CCCP was considred to be a prison of nations so stripes seems very apprpriate for those people.

    I have been told to stay away from Russian girls more than once. Decades of life in a godless restrictive culture have created nothing but empty cutthroats that have zero capacity for sincere affection.

    I don't really know why I put it into news. I'm not sure where it belongs. I was going to put it into the War/Conflict section, since it is military-related... Not sure. But it is an important holiday, certainly to my family, where several men have served in the Navy. So, worthy of a thread.

    Anyway, your nick is wrong, Bandera. Bandera was StePan, not SteFan... If he is your hero, spell his name right. It is okay to be jelous, by the way. Yes, Ukraine does not have a Navy worthy of mention. So, I understand your frustration.

    That's in the cities. In some villages you may still find the original Russian beauty. It is rare these days though, true enough.
