In a shocking video out of the former Soviet Republic, footage has surfaced of a Russian soldier having a bullet pulled from his forehead. The so-called “Russian Terminator,” was caught in the crossfire between Russian and Chechen militants.

Amazingly, the wounded man seems undaunted by the situation, remaining calm as his comrade forcibly yanks the embedded AK-47 round out of his head – with a pair of ordinary pliers! After several attempts the bullet is finally removed and inspected. Cheating death, the soldier simply smiles and mugs for the camera.

The footage is said to be gleaned from Russia’s 2000 war with Chechnya and has become a viral hit around the globe.
