The tiny lapel pin badge of the servicemen of the Special Purpose Detachment of the Interior Troops of Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD).
The emblem stands for the years of glorious fighting history. Initially it belonged to the first created in the USSR special actions group “Vityaz” (Knight-errant). The fist over the machine gun shortly and clearly shows force and confidence. Further this emblem was borrowed by the majority of the special forces detachments.
The lapel pin badge made of a goldish metal (brass) with a relief image of a skull topped with a commando beret.
The lapel pin is to be fastened to the lapel of a full-dress uniform with a special clip called “butterfly fitting”. Thanks to the fine needle the fastening does not leave traces or pierces on clothes, does not damage the product.
