The organisation of one of the world’s most famous, elite commando forces began in the 1930s, but the first major deployment units were created during WWII to counter the forces of the Ukrainian uprising. Later, in the 1950s Marshal Zhukov ordered the organisation of almost 50 elite units in the Soviet Union.

We talked to police colonel Ferencz Szekeres, Hungary’s former Internal Affairs Attaché in Moscow, about Spetsnaz.
