Report from the disciplinary battalion, from the author of 28 separate disciplinary battalion in Moulineaux - one of the two remaining Russian disciplinary battalion. Second - near Chita. But in those days, when the disciplinary battalion in the country was more Mulino was considered one of the safest, if not the word "welfare" and "disciplinary battalion" can be placed next. A few hours spent in this institution inspires respect, I think it turned out to be extremely useful. Rare power source of knowledge of life.
Disciplinary battalion - not a prison, and military units. 12801 HF serve two types of personnel - fixed and variable. Servicemen of variable composition - are those that are within the secured perimeter. Get inside at different times, from three months to two years. At the moment, in part 170 "guests" of the 800 possible.
Knowledgeable people explained: call in a disciplinary battalion - the task is not so simple. I mean, there are a few "accidentally stumbled", more of those who managed to acquire his work quite significant personal "glory." Army - not the Chamber of Weights and Measures and mainstay scout troop, is a huge organization within which happens all the mass of the strangest violations and deviations. And some have to strain to be personally seen against the general background. Some have not regretted it forces.
In disciplinary battalion many of those who indulged in the so-called hazing. Otherwise, this kind of relationship called "hazing" or "godkovschinoy." One of the most common types of bullying - beating colleagues. In addition to the "executioners" great and the percentage of "sochintsev" (op - absence without leave), or as they are called - "skiers". Generally speaking, the articles on which the soldiers convicted of variable composition, not so much.
For example, Article 335 of the Criminal Code. Violation of the regulations on personal relations in the absence of subordination relations between them. Violation of the regulations on personal relations in the absence between them of subordination relations, connected with humiliation of honor and dignity, or a mockery of the victim or involving violence, shall be punished in a disciplinary military unit for a term not exceeding two years, or imprisonment for up to three years. And sub-Article.
Or Article 337. Unauthorized leaving unit or place of service. Absence without leave or place of service, as well as absence without valid excuse at the service of the dismissal of the section, with the appointment, transfer, from a business trip, vacation or hospital lasting more than two days, but not more than ten days, committed undergoing military conscription - is punished by imprisonment for up to six months or in a disciplinary military unit for a period of up to one year. And again, a bunch of sub.
There is a disciplinary battalion former thieves, brawlers, thieves, bullies and unprincipled just amazing caliber of fools (for those interested - almost hour movie with real stories). But rapists, murderers and other criminals do not. For these places are a wing.
Here, incidentally, is a very big question arises - where, in fact, is better: a disciplinary battalion or in prison? Personally, I do not know the right answer, but I suspect that the disciplinary battalion for most useful to call the prison. But this is my fantasy of course, as it is there in fact - I do not know. But I know that there were no marks of previous convictions in passport soldier, spend time in the disciplinary battalion - no. Military Commissar, of course, will not be difficult to understand what lies behind the lines about staying in the HF 12801, but for the rest, for the uninvolved - a reputation untarnished. This, it is believed, in some circumstances for a young man can be expensive.
"Nothing makes life a warrior, as a discipline ...»
In companies - only ordinary. Past achievements, titles and distinctions in the standings do not go. Branch of service and specialization also play no role. Sailor motostrelok, border guard or "Vova" - all are equally friendly to the bosom take disciplinary battalion. Shear shaved and disguised in new uniforms. Times when a disciplinary battalion wore Red Army uniform of 1943 - passed. Forage caps with asterisks, trousers and gimnastёrok with stand-up collar warehouses are no more.
Servicemen dressed in ordinary "camouflage". Top shape with white paint applied through a stencil numbers mouth and the words convoy full back. This is not to mix between a constant and a variable composition. Another visible difference between the compositions - instead overcoat jackets. Although, as seen in the picture, and jackets too. Fairly uniform shoes - boots. In cold - boots. Boots, incidentally, have met in part convicted soldiers downright shine. Buckles at the soldiers, on the contrary, faded, field. Some reason painted with green paint.
Inside the protected perimeter bars on the windows, buffer gates of metal mesh and other restrictions. Sleeping room in the barracks separated lockable lattice metal door. If the itch at night fighter in the toilet - it should be noted in a special list and proceed to the place of origin of natural needs strictly in splendid isolation. Already two of us, for example, at night to rush to the toilet can not be.
While we photographed orderly, sleeping in the barracks outfit received the command "Rise!" Vacationers instantly soared over the beds and crisp short formation marched into the room for washing.
The national question in part is missing, all sorts of "national groups" and other kuchkovaniya not encouraged. But the so-called "Caucasians" - present. Approximately one fourth of the 170 current "condemnation" - from the Caucasus. Among them there are mistakenly consider themselves stubborn and inflexible citizens. When stopped at a disciplinary battalion ardent fighter for the rights of their male list of suggested pleasures seen enough full - there is healing guardhouse. Length of stay there - up to 30 days. Decision of the court is not required, enough will the commander.
If thirty days on the "lip" seem a joke - the procedure can be repeated. So far, they say, helps everyone. At the output thrust to work on a creative and physical labor in the name of society have condemned and erring warrior sharply increased. But "diet food" in the form of bread and water in the guardhouse was canceled. The food there the inmates and a disciplinary battalion fighters alike.
Outside "variables" of soldiers guarding the other warriors - of constant composition. In addition to the shooters on the guard are fierce guard dogs and special equipment. Custodial facility, guards move in "armor", helmets and with fixed bayonets, and if anything, to have the right to open fire. Able to shoot, live firing of the command performs almost ezhepyatnichno, good range in Mulino giant, enough space for hand protection and self-propelled guns.

Labor front for the military variable composition - Circle. Starting from the barracks, shining almost sterile cleanliness, absolutely square drifts around the parade ground and ending with painstaking manufacturing scale models of the local museum.
Who does not know how to do layouts units, ships and aircraft - making concrete blocks and other concrete structures, ship, digs, bears, sews - but you never know what can make a soldier, if he skillfully order! Enough work at all, but not all trust responsible production sites. You will first need to prove himself. They say it is profitable erring soldier.
In some cases, convicted soldiers may fall under parole (parole). Such happiness must be earned. In Ladder going knowledge of military regulations, differences in the drill sergeant, impeccable discipline and success on the labor front. Usually stay in the disciplinary battalion in the life of a soldier is not counted and returned to his unit (or the one where he is sent after release) dosluzhivat position. But it is not rare and the situation when a soldier from the disciplinary battalion sent straight home.
In the meantime, there is no question about the house, on a visit to the convicted soldiers can come closest relatives. Allowed short visits neskolkochasovye (if you can not - telephone calls) and four visits lasting for three days every year. For such cases, there is a special hotel. While staying with my parents, of course, the soldiers released from work and employment.
In the disciplinary battalion can send the parcel. The list of prohibited items brought to the attention of each fighter, everything else - you can. The package is delivered in a part of the postman, the inventory package is loaded into kaptёrku, then the owner is free to dispose of an application for benefits on your own. The standard way - get a piece of parcels before the next meals and share with his friends in the dining room. Separately clarified the issue of cigarettes: in the disciplinary battalion cigarettes will not overwhelm - a fighter does not smoke. Because buy it with money and a mobile phone does not have. Not allowed.
Fed and constant and variable composition of the same. Canteens met our group common to such institutions odor and rows of tables with benches. Dishes, of course, not of Bohemian glass, but clean and neatly arranged. Kitchen with stainless steel boiler, sink with towels and soap, daily changing menu on the stand at the entrance - just like in other parts of the military, where I had to visit.
After the "tour" on the part of the audience was given the opportunity to hear a brief history of the four fighters disciplinary battalion. Most of them are harmless "gunners". Ran out of the house, ran for three days now hold nine months behind the fence in Moulineaux. Next to him, a guy with a Georgian surname and restless eyes. Beat officer to shoot it on video, and vidimokameru this broke. How Come? Why? Is unclear. 10 months to think about.
Best kept former sergeant who served for 11 months, zadembelevavshy and on this basis to express themselves in serious bodily injury. In Moulineaux arrived at 2 years. Looked at all the eagle apparently nut strong. In the eyes of the rest was dark and scary. Young boys aroused sympathy, which is already there. Among them were wonderful characters. Now all together waiting for exciting activities to correct itself same.
Accompany us officers available explained: trimming and relentless okvadrachivanie snow, constant walking system, an easy cast concrete blocks in the industrial area and many months zubrёzh the same, a hundred times already annoying Charter - class, of course, stupid. It is clear to everyone, especially civil. Monolingual classes - it's extortion, theft, escape, assault, theft of motor vehicles, absenteeism to mom and rides on leave from overworking themselves multi-day booze mixed with indiscriminate looting confused citizens. Well quite another matter!
The pull of a similar craze in disciplinary battalion eliminate using occupational therapy. As we stood on the parade ground, several groups of men with crowbars, shovels and brooms defiled in different directions, at a measured pace brisk mёrzlomu asphalt. On the parade ground soldiers marching disciplinary battalion or (more often - in the ranks, but sometimes individually) or run to run. Drill and exercise are closely intertwined and fills almost the entire leisure serviceman. In general, the impression that the soldiers of variable composition in disciplinary battalion or tends to stand at attention or immediately run run.
In the so-called "Free time" military disciplinary battalion can turn to faith. On the territory of disciplinary battalion hands convicted erected a small, very neat Orthodox church. For Muslims, there is a prayer room. In rare moments of leisure faithful soldiers have the opportunity to reflect on their immortal souls. Places of worship in the military unit is not empty.
Does running of the disciplinary battalion? Run. But rarely and poorly. One of the cases escape recorded in 2008. Escape ended sadly, after warning shots into the air guard opened fire on a fugitive, he was shot in both legs, and guard dogs and bitten more wounded. But here it is not necessary to search for the guilty, all the participants in this event for sure know what they are going and what should be expected. In Moulineaux is not Hollywood, many kilometers of heated ventilitsionnyh manholes and baskets of linen to ensure a comfortable escape to be found.
Have been in the history of disciplinary battalion and particularly resourceful soldiers, one decided to run away on the sheets in the box directly from the hotel, where the parents came from, and the other bravely ate nails and other metal objects. Really wanted to have a rest in the hospital. Nails of the entertainer removed and transferred to a museum piece. There's also stored and other items seized from (of) the convicted - syringes, homemade playing cards, primitive sharpening knives and other useful stuff.
No, let me emphasize once more reds, no horror in the arrangement of the notice failed except those that were shown at every step: cleanliness, monotony, full employment. Without jokes - 8:00 drill and physical training 8 hours studying manuals, 8 hours of sleep, moving strictly within the perimeter jogging or marched, test, build, strict implementation of the agenda, the daily drill stand not everyone. Statutes, for example, to study the complete amazement and the confluence of the military trance, only on this basis can the mind move! There is no doubt - a serious place. The faces of soldiers variable composition immediately see everything. It is not necessary, they say, get here, but only late in the day illuminates.
I do not know whether useful in later life soldiers received disciplinary battalion skills, but from talking to a soldier of constant composition revealed: knowledge Charter still makes life on either side of the barbed wire. It looks like a soldier knows what he is talking about.
