Your crew has been insulted by some shore-duty Staff pogue. Do we really need a translator?
Actually - anyone know enough Russian to give me a transcript in English? Mine isn't up to snuff for this rant and all its Sailor-speak goodness. The face of the XO or COB at the 3-minute marks speaks to me as well.
Who is he yelling at?
Shchury, commander of the K-295 Samara nuclear submarine, was filmed telling off Sergei Bondarenko, the senior disciplinary officer with the vessel's division, for not congratulating his crew on Navy Day.They still have those?!?
The disgruntled captain, speaking in a hoarse roar, denounces the perceived snub to his crew — which he says is one of only two units in the division that do any actual work — in expressions unfit for publication.
Shchury also stresses — with obscenities — that the crewmen are ready to die for their motherland. Curiously, he never directly targets Bondarenko over the course of the three-minute footage. ... Bondarenko — whose job is informally known as "political officer"...
Captain Shchury - if you are as old as I think you are, as JOs good chance we played on the opposite side of the game a few times - at least it is fun to think so. In any event - I salute you! I can't stand those oxygen thieves either.
Hat tip FCC.
