Instagram in the Army
A soldier’s live project: Tough army workdays on Instagram
There’s probably never been anything like this before on the popular Instagram app: Mikhail Shamsutdinov, doing his national service in the Chita division of the army, shares photos of harsh army life on his page.
The soldier Instagrams how his service is going: The whole country can see from his photos what he eats, where he sleeps, and his surroundings. The grey-brown-green tones of army life, it has to be said, are lent a certain harsh charm thanks to Instagram filters.
A classic portrait: a photo in front of the mirror.
My dog-tags with the number of thieves …
Free labour in the park.
I serve the Russian Federation.
One of the only joys in the army.
Watching the boxing.
In the barracks.
End of the weekend, I’m waiting for the new week to start …
Beggar in the dining room.
All of the brotherly peoples of Russia showed me their love.
So it happens.
Preparing for inspections.
The soldier sleeps, his service goes on.
Today is my 200th day of service …
Comments from Fresher.ru:
There’s not much information here … (
Serve your time and come back alive!!!
This is just national service, nothing new here. They fed us worse before.
Just normal military service, mine was worse, but I’m not complaining at any rate, it was very interesting)))

If it was interesting, then you can always sign up as a contract soldier, they’ll always have you back?!
And where are they, these “tough army workdays”?
Hey, won’t the guy get chewed out when his officers see this?
“One of the only joys in the army”
What a great expression. But what has the number 369396 on his dog-tags got to do with thieves?

Every number is a multiple of three))
