VDV are the units typically sent on international peace keeping/making missions. The purpose of this thread is to give people an idea of Russian forces abroad.

The following videos are are a Russian documentary from when Russian VDV redeployed to Kosovo from Bosnia. They wanted to take a decisive role in the peace making process in Kosovo after NATO interference in Yugoslavia's internal affairs. So NATO wouldn't monopolize the process, VDV forces road marched South and occupied the airfield there. This airfield was originally the target for British occupation. The British General was ready to start World War III by attacking the Russians there. But the officers refused to fight the Russians.

In these videos you can check out some of the kit VDV was wearing in 1999.

This is a music video giving tribute to these events. Some of the video is recycled from the documentary

Paulie's father served as a Peace Maker in Yugoslavia, maybe he has some personal interesting things to share. I hope he does.

Feel free to post more Russian VDV in Kosovo related material here.
