RUSSIAN soldiers have been caught on camera ROBBING a bank in war-torn Georgia. The band of gun-toting men were caught on CCTV forcing their way into the bank in Gori.
Once inside, the men are seen breaking into the teller offices and rifling through the desks.

Russia’s entire national philosophy recapitulated in miniature.
A defining moment - in deed!
These guys may wear uniforms....but they aren’t anything other than hooligans who barely can take orders. I’d say that the Bolivian National Guard...are more professional than these characters. And I’ll add this comment....against the fifteen thousand invaders....if they had come up against 3,000 US Marines, with just Air Defense support only (not even fighter or helicopter supporter)....the US Marines would have cleaned their clock.
They were just looking for Wodka.
There will be many stories of rape and pillage before this is over and you can bet there will be no “Haditha” style prosecutions of Russian solders.
Just as the invasion of Georgia is a microcosm of their vision for all the breakaway republics.
Aren’t these the same guys that try to sell their AK-74’s to tourists?
The corrupt US media won’t make a big deal out of it-——but, if they put panties on the bank teller’s heads then watch out!!! Crissy Matthews will go crazy!
Aww, they can’t be doing that! They are only helping those poor defenseless South Ossetians that the bullying Georgia massacred.
HA! Some morons on the Sun website are claiming that these are really Georgian troops who stole Russian uniforms. Good God.
The pillaging continues.
These thugs are Putin-KGB trained animals!
If our government wasn't so full of communists at the end of WWII and Walter Reuther's brother (commie) didn't travel to Europe to make certain we withdrew most of our troops leaving Eastern Europe open to Stalin, we'd have rolled over the Soviet border and cleaned house!
Or, if Hitler hadn't been a lunatic and concentrated on his Eastern front and left the weak sisters alone, he'd have done the job for us.
A 'Murtha' wouldn't survive in Russian politics.
When the Red Army entered Berlin in 1945, the Soviet Soldiers marvelled at the flush toilets, never having seen them before.
Is the city deserted? I suppose what I am getting at is the lack of so much as law enforcement officers in the area. I am almost certain they would not pull that crap in America. Russian troops would quickly become Russian corpses.
We are armed, the land of the free and the home of the brave.
No. Kellov's comrades. Don't bring the Poles into this mess.
This is the type of heroic act that gets you the highly coveted Heroes of the Russian Federation medal.
I recall a book written by a former member of the Viet Cong who described a similar scenario. When NVA forces entered Sai Gon in 1975, they looted stores and were amazed and shocked to find that the South was not the poor, destitute land they were told it was. He wrote of men filling ammo pouches with transistor radios and watches by the handful.

Beat me to it!
I love that movie.
In one shot, they offer the German officer the deal.
Two seconds later, a shot of the bank door exploding.
Absolutely no deliberation, whatsoever.
I have been struck by the disorderliness of the Russian Army, from the bizarre formation of what looked like poorly dressed poorly trained and barely able to keep in a column troops to the actions of them on the ground where they are unprofessional and totally oblivious to their surroundings. Compare this with US Troops as they entered Iraq in formation, professional, and with a purpose. The only thing Russia has got going for it is they have a whole lot of these thugs in their so called army.
Do you call it “deserted” when everyone was killed by them?
Who says Hollywood wasn’t out to make American soldiers the bad guys even before Vietnam....
These soldiers were acting-out a movie? Is that what you are suggesting?
No. I was simply pointing out that -ski/-sky is Polish, whereas -ov/-ich are Russian.
Just like here: illegal immigrants doing jobs the locals don’t want to.
No! I think they wanted that computer so they could keep up with what's happening on FreeRepublic.
p.s. How do we know if they really are "Russian soldiers"? They could well be militia.
The media generally doesn't know it's ass from it's elbow when it comes to the military. Any armor is a "tank" to them.
Earlier I saw a photo captioned something like, "Russian SU-25 (frogfoot) bombs Georgia".
The people at a military photo blew that out of the water (guess I should say air) by identifying it as a Georgian SU-25KM "Scorpion"!
I would say the only thing they got going for them is a lot of nukes. Other wise they would of been history under Truman.
Typical Russian peacekeepers lol.
What an absolute bunch of drunkards....
rape, kill, pillage and burn ....we’re gonna
rape, kill, pillage and burn.
Speaking of which, how did they get nukes - I can't believe their drunken scientists were able to do what our Manhattan Project folks were able to do.
A US Communist sympathizer in the military sell something to the Russians to help them along, perhaps?
Come on guys. Stop with the non-sense and take a step back. The soldiers caught on tape are South Ossetian paramilitaries and irregulars. South Ossetian irregulars are currently on the rampage in Gori. Even the Russian commanders are getting tired of them. There was a recent inteview with a Russian commander who stated that they have been disarming some of them.
Quite well put.
Russia has always been very good at stealing our designs. So we should give them credit for that to.
How do you know that?
Julius and ethel Rosenberg and half the Roosevelt Administration stole the bomb.
Personally, I lay the responsibility for the majority of the Cold War on FDR's shoulders. He is one of the worst presidents this country has ever elected.
Stole or sold? I wasn’t alive during that period and I attended public schools, so I know nothing!
I thought the same thing! I mean I am just a middle aged woman but when I was watching the Russian tanks and soldiers it seemed more like a teenage prank in a movie. But one of the fox reporters said that the Russian people blame us and there were some anti-american sentiment in areas where she was in Moscow.
