The sleeve patch represents an emerald shield with a golden cord edging.
The field of the shield is cleaved with the blue stripes of the St. Andrew’s Cross with a blue trimming.
In the center of the cross there is a crowned golden double-headed eagle with the Moscow shield on its chest and two diagonally crossed silver Admiralty anchors with the stocks up (the emblem of the Naval Forces of the Border Troops of Russia).
Since the Border Troops of Russia are subordinated to the Federal security service (FSB, former KGB) being its formation, additional information about this detachment and other military divisions of FSB is secret.
The main objective of Russian Border Service is guarding and protection of its land frontier, air and naval borders.
The main distinctive sign of Russian Border Guards is the uniform cap with green top, or a light green beret and a stripped vest with the light green strips, the color hue of which significantly differs from the olive strips of a common stripped vest.
During the celebration of the Day of the Border Guard (May 28) the military personnel transferred to the reserve often show their uniform cap as a sign of belonging to the brotherhood of the Border Troops.
The green cap is a subject of special pride of the Border Guards and can be compared in this aspect to the Airborne blue beret.
