This is from a (corny) TV military documentary series.
This episode focuses on recon. Not VDV, just general military recon.
First it shows the different weapons used. The reliable AK74M with 1P63 right. Then an AKMSB. And then a special pistol I can't remember, and then I think an Austrian rifle.
Then they conduct an ambush on a small convoy. Nothing really new here. If you've watched Russian ambush videos, this is an abridged version if anything.
Then they do a something like a 'mud run' which they call a 'heroes run'


On base you see that the personnel are in Digital Flora, but the recon wear Flora. The commander/instructor is wearing a Flora Mabuta, and the rest of them are in Mountain Flora Suits. They area also wearing regular flora pattern 6Sh104 and 6Sh112 rigs.

Here is another video from 2013 about Recon training.
Its a short one. Can check out their relatively contemporary kit for inspiration, and see briefly a Russian formation and reaction.
They are mountain troops, not VDV, but the kit shouldn't be much different, besides telnyashka.

They are rocking the Flora Mabuta uniforms. Flora boonie, panama and bucket style hats.
