Russian Women Train To Become Special Forces Officers (Video)

The final stage of a six week training course for around 35 future female officers of the Russian Army's Special Forces was held at the training base in southern Russia. The women sharpened their skills against chemical and biological attacks and guerrilla warfare in woodland areas, as well as hand-to-hand fighting, confronting unconventional forces and destroying enemy armored vehicles. Since the beginning of 2013, more than 600 soldiers, including about 150 women, have completed the training program that inaugurates them into the Spetsnaz, a general name for elite divisions of the Russian army.
