    It is the old Interior Army plus other units such as the Reaction or Riot Police (OMON), SWAT police (SOBR), etc. It is not a branch of the Ministry of Defense.

    Might as well call OMON army of a kind since they been used in combat multiple of times. I loved their uniforms so it was a shame to see it go but they are now part of a very effective combat unit within the country.

    What about FSB forces? They seem to be their own?

    Correct, they have the Border Service, Coast Guard and some Spetsnaz / SWAT paramilitary (Alpha being the most famous).

    The FSO (Federal Protection Security Service) have paramilitary units with the largest being the Kremlin Guard Regiment.

    The EMERCON (Emergency Services / Civil Defense) also has some paramilitary units (armed search and rescue).

    And finally the SVR (Foreign Intelligence) have some paramilitary forces designed to protect Russian Embassies in countries that require it.

    The Correctional Service and Bailiff Service also employee SWAT type paramilitary forces.  

    Also the OMON kept their blue cam uniforms and are actually growing. The SM (Special Mobile) units of the Interior troops were a semi-military police type with a similar function to the OMON. There were 24,000 OMON and 26,000 SM at the merger. I have read that a lot of the SM units have been or will be disbanded and merged into the OMON increasing their total to 40,000.

    However we have gone seriously off topic.
