"Wolverine": the indispensable role of a special forces platoon
There are special units in the special forces of the internal troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia - separate special forces platoons for the protection of important state objects. They are part of a large security and defense system organized around secret enterprises, in which they have their own important role - countering sabotage or terrorist groups. Zheleznogorsk "wolverines" - one of these units.



A special-purpose platoon "Wolverine" of a separate Zheleznogorsk battalion of the internal troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia was created on the basis of the special forces group of the same name. Formed at the end of 1994 of the year, a group of about a hundred people after eight months of training was sent to Chechnya as part of the combined detachment of special forces "Lynx". The soldiers received their baptism of fire by working side by side with their brothers from Vityaz and Rosich. Performed normal spetsnaz work. They conducted reconnaissance in a mountainous and wooded area, accompanied the movement of columns, and ensured the activities of engineering reconnaissance patrols. Not without loss. BTR’s mechanic-driver, sergeant Alexander Galle, who died during a special operation in the Jalka forest, will always be remembered. Subsequently, he was awarded the title Hero of Russia. After the conclusion of the “peaceful” Khasavyurt agreement, the group was sent to the point of permanent deployment, where it existed until August 1998. By order of the Minister of the Interior, a platoon was created at the base of the special forces unit.



Since that time, the tasks for the wolverines have not changed. Of course, the special forces platoon is not the first and not the last barrier on the way of the bandits, but one of the most reliable. Siberians operate on the principle of army special forces, making long field exits in the taiga, conducting reconnaissance of the area, practicing possible options to reflect the capture of objects. However, the specificity of the special forces of the law enforcement forces allows, if necessary, to conduct an assault on the vehicle and the building.
A platoon is commanded today by Senior Lieutenant Sergei Kornilovich. In the recent past, he served in the Rosich Special Forces detachment in the North Caucasus. The selection of those wishing to get into the elite platoon is conducted by the commander and ensigns-instructors. The basic requirements are very simple: the fighter must be completely healthy, with a stable mind, and have excellent physical training. Each candidate is required to explain that he is waiting during service - constant and hard training. As a rule, by the end of the selection, an average of about 5 – 8 people remain, of whom half a year after half of the service does not stand the load and leaves. “To survive, to win, to win, to survive!” Is the motto of “wolverines”.

Combat training takes place in platoon according to the schedule. Practice tactics in groups and singly in mountainous and wooded areas and in the city. They learn to camouflage, using the terrain, set and neutralize mines and explosive devices, fire from ordinary and special weaponsin various ways to throw grenades. On the fiery assault strip overcome various obstacles and obstacles in the assault house and special buses to work out options for the release of hostages. Mining training sessions are held at the facility where a special stand is equipped. After lunch, as a rule, great attention is paid to the “wolverine” to improve their physical fitness.
More than 70 percent divisions are contractors. They all have combat experience. For the past few years, 3 – 4 servicemen have been systematically assigned to special forces units of the Siberian Regional Command during their visits to the North Caucasus region.

    no need to hang noodles these troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs were created to wet civilians or as defensive squads to shoot our children in the back and these creatures didn’t see wars in history, the army was poor and the NKVD was fat and how they fought with the poor at the rear of our factories grandmothers

      I know how the NKVD was getting fat: she was cutting and catching German saboteurs and our traitors (at the front it was SMERSH). And it was not so easy with the detachment detachments: if the penalties were killed, the detachment continued the attack; if the Germans broke through the fortifications, the detachment had no right to retreat. So, by the way, Ruben Ibaruri, son of Dolores, died.
      They had more rights, but also responsibility at times more.
      Something similar in your style can be said about the army in general, and about teachers and doctors ...

    hear the speaker, did you yourself serve in the army? VV was originally created as a national guard, law enforcement forces, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and the analogies with the NKVD are superfluous here, and they were created to restore order inside the country, to suppress riots, to combat terrorism, that the troops of the VV and proved in the North Caucasus, I served in this group, the legendary unit and I am glad that he is commanded by an officer from Rosich, special forces will flourish, special forces T

    "Hear Andrey", you can be proud of the title of honorary detachment detachment of the NKVD, but even your superiors are not ashamed to talk about the main goal of your shobla - to crush the people dissatisfied with the powerful thief. That is why VaVanchikov is being driven across half the country by the Nizhniy Novgorodskys for dispersal in Moscow, Rostovkiy to Nihny Novgorod. Herachit RP of other people's parents and neighbors is somewhat simpler than his own. And about the "suppression of mass riots, the fight against terrorism" with the participation of VaVanchiks, we only see in a zombie box. Podmoskovnaya, "wild named after Felix Edmundych", sticks out of the location only when the people are out on the street. So don't build a hero-defender out of yourself.

      As for putting things in order, when the usual infantry restore order, then there are many - many times more victims, primarily among rioting protesters, and among soldiers killed and wounded happen. When all kinds of special forces are engaged in this, the victims are usually at least or not at all. And guess why.

        that's all that you have just listed, this should be dealt with by the infantry !!! It has nothing to do with special forces, it has nothing, well, perhaps only "to use special weapons."
        Because the special forces of the BB is a crime! IMHO.

    SERG 49-49,
    49-49, as I understand it, your height and weight, that's why you don't like Russian special forces so much. And "Wolverines" personally from me - Honor and Respect.

      this is such a beast ... incomprehensible, small, arrogant, impudent and unusually cunning and disgusting. This is the only name that the Air Force "special forces" should have. I have nothing against the abbreviation "Spetsnaz GRU", these are military, army intelligence officers, saboteurs. But what should the special forces of the Internal Troops do in their own country, mind wink I will not attach it. This is what such secret operations they are preparing on their territory ??? And most importantly WHO?

          special forces, this is literally - the fighters are opposed to professional saboteurs!
          Against the bandits, the drug dealers, only the opera must and MUST work! Against the prison riots, special teams trained in CONCERNING the ZEK and no more !!! Illegal armed formations, this is a gang, a former "herd", which organized and imagined itself to be a "flock", and what kind of relation could special forces have to them ???

            Hmm ... Spetsnaz, this is DEFINITELY - troops (subunits) of SPECIAL PURPOSE. Which one is up to those who create them. And who they should fight with is up to those who send them on a mission. And it doesn't matter what kind of mission it is: the destruction of a bandit group, a sabotage group, the release of hostages, the destruction of "something" or "someone" behind enemy lines, and so on and so on. The range of application of SPECIAL PURPOSE units, that is, special forces, is huge.
            So, you are not quite right in such a narrow (even too) wording. fellow

              wink You are formally right, but I’m wrong!
              SPECIAL VALUE, this, "by default" was implied by me. This, I thought, and so everyone knows ... wink
              But, as usual, chatting with something familiar, we think a little, but what am I actually chatting about? wink
              So here I am explaining the special forces are fighters AGAINST PROFESSIONALS. The American "Green Berets" are their special forces, they are sharpened to fight the partisans, to conduct actions in hard-to-reach, wooded places, our GRU special forces are the same.
              The question is - why do we need SPECIAL ECONOMIC EXPLOSIVES ??? There are BB troops, there is opera, there are just cops. Someone lucidly explain why Special Forces BB ??? To smash the adversary's prisons? Riots there to arrange? Wet their policemen?

                Amers have not only "green berets", right?
                If we are specific, then we can specifically talk about the UNITS of various special forces, sharpened for this or that. But in addition to their main "sharpening", so to speak, they may well perform related tasks.
                Special Forces, this is the general name of the military units. Or isn’t it?
                And to whom to destroy saboteurs, and to whom on the contrary to be saboteurs - this is the second, narrow-profile issue.
                Or isn’t it?
                By explosives and their special forces.
                Gangs in the Caucasus to track down and destroy. Why not ? This is exactly an INTERNAL affair.
                Riots in the zones to crush? Although, of course, there are "mutiny suppression groups" for this, but I also think that the special forces of the VV have the right to do so.
                Anyway, now whoever does not have "hurry", all the branches of the army. And they are all special forces. wink It's gone from the 90s.

                  yes, they also have "MR" military police, "Navy SEALs" and paramilitary civilian police ... and that's it, no more special forces ...

                  a little bit wrong. The only special forces that I know and which we are probably talking about now are GRU special forces and it has nothing to do with military units, except perhaps the most nominal ... They do not report directly to the Minister of Defense, but directly to the Chief of the Operations Directorate of the General Staff ... (OUG)
                  Well, here I also say that I just put on ankle boots and immediately became a special forces ... But I still think that in the BB, apart from units like "Alpha", "Pennant" to do some kind of lynx, wolverines is criminal!
                  Ordinary soldiers need to be trained in such a way that they, at the moment, professionals, successfully resist civilians who have descended from the mountains ... So that they are sober, do not smoke, do not poison themselves with beer ...

        What, have we got gangs and bandits? Are they not taking hostages? Are there any riots in the zones? Armed drug traffickers with guards (in Asia and other south) do not carry dozens of kilos of dope? All sorts of "illegal armed formations" suddenly disappeared? But armed rebellions are still possible with the danger of developing a civil war, as in Transnistria. - And why ask? Or is it also a war against its civilians?

        It’s clearly written anti-terror, protection of particularly important objects, the search and destruction of enemy sabotage groups, what is not clear? This is what the special forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs are doing (including).
