On their professional holiday a group of Belarusian rescuers took part in an enchanting competition … on Stalin’s Line near Minsk. Although many bloopers were made, it did not become less spectacular.

The highlight of the program was rescuing Santa Claus, who was in such a hurry to bring gifts to kids (yes, in mid-January) that he decided to walk on the thin ice.

And frankly speaking, this Santa Claus was odd-looking – wearing a diving suit he bore a strong resemblance to a ninja. Nevertheless, he did earn praise as he fell through the ice, let rescuers pull him out…

As the hoses were not long enough, it was impossible to use fire-fighting foam.

It still remains under wraps why at a certain moment Soviet paratroopers and Afghan mujahideen ppopped up against the background of a typical Belarusian plains with snow, pines and birches.

It was obvious that the celebration program was rehearsed many times.

Interestingly, two ‘warriors’ started to fight hand-to-hand, although the both were carrying arms.

There were ‘wounded’ and ‘killed’ people. And a ‘Soviet soldier’ with a knife in the hands was trying to defend his comrades from a ‘mujahid’.
