These have been unchanged since the time of the soviet union, and are still used by Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and several other countries for the troops of their Airborne Forces.
Originally worn by the Imperial Russian Navy, the telnyashka became popular among the Soviet Navy, and later, the Russian military and other branches. The colors of the stripes can carry specific meanings: for example, the black-striped telnyashka is commonly associated with the naval forces, while the blue-striped shirt is often linked to the airborne troops (VDV).
Beyond its practical use as an undergarment, the telnyashka holds a symbolic significance, embodying the resilience, courage, and unity of those who wear it. It has become an iconic piece of clothing in Post-Soviet military culture.
