Well, as for shooting US weapons we don`t shoot them as we are just infantry.. we don`t use much of innovations, except your helmets made of special alloys that are very light-weight( usually used during the demonstrative trainings when some colonels come to check) and the Armasight night vision.. but I hear some Special Forces use sophisticated foreign weapon... most probably there are some of american ones among them. I don`t want to go into political issues too.. besides I don`t know much about it actually.. though I have to say that at our political information classes officers say that America is no threat to Russia.. we have another very serious rapidly growing enemy bordering us which we should be really prepared to fight with... I think you guessed who this is.. As for the feedback from my leadership it is ok.. we are just infantry.. we don`t know something other countries may not know.. I can go to any country on holiday without signing papers or anything... I respect the labour of a military of any country. we don`t decide anything... we are neither good nor bad.. we just do what we are made for.
It is only politicans who may be good or bad, stupid or clever..
