http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/scotland/4453919.stm Situation in Russian army is maybe even worse. Look http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3760552.stm but beating of sleeping... it's beyond rules. What do you think about this case in Scotland? It is rare isolated case or rather a tradition? I remember one case. A soldier (Russian one) was severely beaten by his mates but he denied even fact of beating. It is a tradition of Russian army: soldier who is complaining is not true soldier.
