Don't you just hate it when you're playing a really vital role in a ceremony for Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, and it all goes a little bit wrong?
The ceremony took place on Monday, and unsurprisingly this clip has now made its way onto YouTube.
The magic moment happens at around 11 seconds – and as Daily Picks And Flicks notes: “The best part is not the guard’s smooth recovery, but the way both presidents barely kept straight faces through the blunder.”November 21, 2013 at 8:17 am #423799

Actually, the marching was my favorite part.November 21, 2013 at 11:04 am #423801
Too bad it was in honor of that Azeri criminal.November 21, 2013 at 1:20 pm #423802
I think they should include this move into the greeting ceremony from now on.November 21, 2013 at 2:34 pm #423803
Lol … But it's not really his fault imo. Afterall, why do they and the Russians have to keep those hats so damn huge? I mean, look at those things!November 21, 2013 at 7:51 pm #423804
I am under impression of this soldier’s reflex. I can imagine how stressed he was performing the greetings ceremony before two presidents, but how he managed to be so cold blooded when he accidentally knocked off his cap? Kudos to him. On the other hand there is not so easy to become a saber master. Luckily he didn’t hurt himself. In that case I doubt the presidents' faces were so cool
Anyway, I am sure that thanks to this unusual situation they will remember him well
