Promotional video of the Spanish special forces reminded many about the MTR GRU, Russia.

In the Russian segment of the Internet actively discussed the video, which depict various stages of preparation of special troops of Spain. The video shows that the soldiers of the Spanish forces, during the training, were subjected to many physical tests: cross-country skiing, climbing, skydiving, overcoming the obstacle.

In any case, the Spanish officers why-that teach their soldiers fighting in winter conditions, which because of the warm climate in Spain, no.

If it even has to go to Norway, where they carried out winter training of the Spanish forces.
