Day of special forces of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia is celebrated on November 13. Competitions of professional skills, which are traditionally organized annually on the eve of the holiday, were held on the basis of the regional departmental department of special purpose “Ural”.

This year, both experienced special forces soldiers and recruits fought for the title of the best special forces soldier. Each of them had to pass a number of difficult tests – to demonstrate theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

The competition program included: a five-kilometer cross-country, overcoming an obstacle course in full gear with military weapons, high-altitude, fire training and much more. The tasks were carried out without a break for rest.

For a special forces soldier, not only excellent physical fitness and endurance are important, but also tactical skills, endurance, the ability to quickly assess the situation and make a decision. For example, in a shooting range, a fighter must not only accurately hit targets – conditional terrorists (without hitting the hostages!) – but also do it faster than his rivals. Seconds are everything!

Much attention is paid to the medical training of the participants. In case of injury, the fighter must be able to provide first aid not only to himself, but also to other victims.

– The fight is always very intense. The goal of each participant is to win. Today everyone has shown themselves very worthy. The title of the best special forces soldier is honorable and responsible. The soldiers gain invaluable experience and improve their professionalism, ”said the head of the Ural special unit, Colonel of the Internal Service Ruslan Tumakov.
