Personnel of the Russian Airborne Forces performed a group parachute jump in the Arctic from an altitude of 10,000 metres, a never-before accomplished feat.

“For the first time in world history, we conducted a group landing of personnel using special parachute systems in Arctic conditions from a height of 10,000 meters using oxygen equipment and subsequently completed combat training missions. Nobody has done this before,” Deputy Defence Minister Yunus-Bek Evkurov said adding that the paratroopers used a “next-generation special-purpose parachute system”.
