New Report on the reformation of Russia's armed forces

This was on the BBC last night


Taking a look at the reforms currently being implemented within Russia's armed forces, in particular one of it's Parachute Regiments.
Part 1 of 2, I'll post the second part tomorrow once it's been shown real-time and gets posted on the BBC website.

Edit: Heres the reporter's blog on the subject:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programme...ht/7947082.stm - all text so it shouldn't be blocked - I'll try to see if the program has been put on ******* or some other site, irritating that the BBC would block their links like that.

I found this lead-in to the program on BBC web site..
