These Russian Soldiers find themselves in a position that really makes you just stop and think about how crappy combat can be. At the conclusion of a raid against Dagestani insurgents, the building they were raiding catches on fire.
As the Russian troops assess their situation, and try to escape the flames, they find themselves taking accurate fire from nearby insurgents. One of the first soldiers on the ladder to escape is immediately hit, and he falls directly on top of another soldier on the ladder.
The remaining men in the apartments start to succumb to smoke inhalation, but their comrades won’t give up the rescue attempts.
