    Do real life Russian 'splinter cells' exist? Serious Question

    The Russian one man Army.

    According to to the Splinter Cell wiki, Voron (Russian: Ворон) is a Russian fictional special operations group dedicated to high-risk infiltration and information gathering.
    I know this just a fictional game... But I have always wondered if secret agencies like this exist in Russia, I see no reason why Moscow wouldn't establish these entities??

    No doubt the US has some very powerful and secret shadow organizations that might conduct operations like this..

    These Russian agents could be equipped with a myriad of incredibly powerful gadgets ranging from specialized electronic warfare equipment, small miniaturized explosive devices to destroy equipment all the way to small miniaturized directed energy weapons.

    What are your thoughts...

    Send your question to the GRU. At your own risk. Maybe they answer it.

    Voron (Russian: Ворон) is a Russian fictional special operations group dedicated to high-risk infiltration and information gathering.

    First of all.. fictional.

    Second... isn't all infiltration high risk?

    And what exactly is high risk information gathering... I think I would give that job to a UAV...

    But I have always wondered if secret agencies like this exist in Russia, I see no reason why Moscow wouldn't establish these entities??

    Easy to find out... this is a game. Do the western equivalents exist... are they real or were they invented?

    If they are invented then I would assume the Russians probably haven't bothered with their own invented groups either...

    I suspect both eastern and western groups were invented for the purposes of creating an exciting game... such criteria are not usually considered when forming special forces groups.

    Russia already has dozens and possibly hundreds of different very specialised groups for a wide range of roles... BTW SMERSH is made up too (from James Bond movies).
