55-year-old TV presenter Dmitry Nagiyev was forced to support himself from a young age. The showman began to engage in fartsovka, but quickly got caught and almost landed in jail. But law enforcement officers went forward, and instead of prison, Nagiyev went to the army. Dmitry was assigned to the air defense troops in the village of Ogarkovo, Vologda region.
Now the showman is trying to remember the experience with a positive, but notes that there is no benefit in years of service. The TV presenter criticized the soldiers’ diet, consisting of salted herring and frozen potatoes. In addition, comrades-in-arms constantly tried to check whether Nagiyev really had the title of master of sports in judo – fights for recruits were commonplace.
“I often replay these “wonderful” moments. When you stand on a pile of coal into which you have been driven and say: “Don’t be a bitch, let’s go one on one”, and to the general laughter they kick you further with your feet, it must have given something. So I try to calm myself down. But most likely not.”
