Equality – means that all are equal before the law.
Brotherhood – do not do to others what you would not want to get myself, and do it in relation to other such good deeds, which would be in relation to themselves.
The upper cockade of the Russian Armed Forces is a custom metal sign on the military headdress (service cap). It was approved in 1998 and is applied to the present time.

The Baby Christ is depicted strictly full face, the figure is limited waist-deep, only his right hand with a benedictory (two-fingered) gesture is visible. The bottom of the dog tag is decorated with traditional ornament and a legend in Slavic letters: “THE MOST HOLY MOTHER OF GOD SAVE AND PROTECT”.
The tiny lapel pin badge of the servicemen of the Special Purpose Detachment of the Interior Troops of Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD).
The emblem stands for the years of glorious fighting history. Initially it belonged to the first created in the USSR special actions group “Vityaz” (Knight-errant). The fist over the machine gun shortly and clearly shows force and confidence. Further this emblem was borrowed by the majority of the special forces detachments.
From 1994 to 1998 the metal badge in the form of the stylised Russian flag was accepted in the Russian army for wearing on Garrison caps or berets to the left of the cockade.
This emblem is called “a small flag” or “Guards angle.”
The distinctive feature of the Airborne Troops uniform is a blue beret along with a striped vest.
