Russia's paratroopers serve in the VDV, or vozdushno-desantnie voiska. Like America's airborne forces, the Russian VDV is considered elite and recruits soldiers from both within the Russian armed forces and from the civilian population.


But their tactics for doing so can be a little confusing. For instance, they created a commercial where your mom's ex-boyfriend sings about his clothes every minute or so.
