This is almost the entire film. There are some scenes missing that take place during their training. I know because I have the full version on my computer. Also this google video seems to freeze up often and you have to move the slider yourself to make the movie go again.

It is a fair comparison to call this the Full Metal Jacket of Russia. There are many parallels between the two films.

For those of you who don't already know, this is based around a real story of a VDV company during the Afghan war. There are some inaccuracies but otherwise its a great war movie. Good film over all if you understand what the director was trying to convey. Sorry, no subtitles.

What the movie was loosely based around

This is a great movie but has almost nothing to do with real fight. Only true in this movie is that 9 Rota did exist and it's had a contact with dushmans and spent a night surrounded :) In real life I believe 2 was killed and 4 wounded.

I do agree that it has little to do with the actual fight, but I thought numbers were larger.
Also, This is just to kind of show what it was like.
