Requirements for recruits of the Kremlin Regiment

"There is a real competition for the right to get onto the list of candidates to our regiment,” says regimental officer Col. Roman Lotvin. “At first, the conscripts are selected at the military registration and enlistment office, and then competitions are held—in marching, running, pull-ups, push-ups, assembly and disassembly of a submachine gun—and an aptitude test is given, as well.”
