Has anybody got any info as to the current status of this unit of the Russion Army.
Tried web no info available.Few books have been written about russia`s cold war unit that was trained and place around the world to act as sleeper units.There primary responsabillity was to plan,prepare and attack millitary and civil installation at the outbreak of war with the west.
Have these units been disbainded or reassigned elsewhere.
Seems odd that there is still lack of currant info

Yea. They're twiddling their thumbs, kicking their feet up on their tables and drinking lots of vodka wondering how they'll get the girl on their mind into bed.

I've always been intriuged with the ramafications of the story of Alexandre Tisken, If you want conspiracy here it is - it is the tip of a huge proverbial iceberg that most refuse to contemplate because if true it would lead to a war unlike any seen in human history.

Alexandre Tisken

"Born in 1970 in the Aptekarskiy region of St Petersburg, Russia, now member of the Al-Qaida terrorist organisation, Alexandre Tiskin was one of the first Spetsnatz[?] child agents to be used to infiltrate the Soviet Union's Cold War enemies. The events of Tiskin's life have been mostly covered up and classified by various intelligence agencies. The information present in this article is based on accounts by former Russian intelligence officers and recently declassified documents by the current administration."

Spetznaz (which is an abbreviation for "special purpose" in Russian) is a loose term used to describe all manner of elite commando units. Units of that type exist within a few agencies -- Ministry of Defense Central Intelligence Office (GRU), the Navy, Ministry of Interior, and Federal Security Service (successor of the KGB). The latter has the infamous "Alpha" unit that fought pretty much everywhere including Chechnya. The veterans of the Alpha have an online news outlet (in Russian):
