Exactly how do the Russian/Soviet military wear their berets? Supposedly, the US Military wears their beret with the emblem over their left eye while the Russkies are to their right. Is this true?

Seems as though they both were them over the right eye.

I've only seen US troops wearing the emblem over left eye.

It differs from unit to unit

VDV wear beret with emblem facing front and folded over right ear. Alfa doesn't wear berets anymore, they have really gone past the Russian norm ever sense the fall of the Union and are increasingly becoming more of their own entity. Even in Afghanistan I only have pictures of them wearing TIG helmets and stripped shirts, never any Berets.

In dress uniform they wear Visor caps, but that is all.

MVD wears emblem over left eye and molded over to the right.

Navy wears same as VDV really; emblem front, molded to right, and sometimes have an additional emblem on the left side of the beret.

Mind you this is all Russian Federation norms now. The Soviet Army wasn't much different but they had additional detachments that wore uniforms also such as the tankers crew who wore the same black Beret the Navy did and in the same manner (I think).

Different VDV units wear the beret different sides. MVD special units wear the badge over the right eye and molded to the left. Naval infantry and tankers wear the badge over the left eye and molded to the right
