Before I go into this subject in any great depth, I would first like to deal with Sorcha Faal, otherwise known as David Booth of the CIA. David Booth works within the Central Intelligence Agency in COINTELPRO. Other western intelligence agencies known for using COINTELPRO methods include MI5, MI6, GCHQ, and the think-tank, DEMOS. To be quite blunt, all intelligence agencies have their own COINTELPRO departments.
Here is a picture of “Sorcha Faal” from WhatDoesItMean.com:
She does not exist.

The article mentions "GRU". Do they mean FSB Spetsnaz GRU?
GRU is the English transliteration of the Russian acronym ГРУ, which stands for "Главное Разведывательное Управление", meaning Main Intelligence Directorate.
The GRU is Russia's largest foreign intelligence agency. In 1997 it deployed six times as many agents in foreign countries as the SVR, which is the KGB intelligence successor. It also commanded 25,000 Spetsnaz troops in 1997

In Russia, the FSB currently is operating "Domestic Security".
The SVR handles foreign field operations and intel gathering.
The GRU is more of a clearing house and deals with centralization mostly.
However, the GRU links up with other agencies and performs a host of countless duties, most of them we can only dream about because it's secret.
The Wiki articles explain in detail what types of things each agency performs.
