The Russian Defense Ministry published a few photos taken during the training of a recently-formed Arctic Brigade. The pictures show the military personnel of a reconnaissance company of the Arctic separate motorized rifle brigade mastering the tricky way of reindeer and dog sledding in the Far North. According to the Defense Ministry, the air temperature was -30 °C (-22 °F). Facebook commentators noticed that “some pictures look surreal.”
