The Soviet Border Troops were the border guard of the Soviet Union, subordinated to the Soviet state security agency: first to the Cheka/OGPU, then to NKVD/MGB and, finally, to the KGB. The mission of the Border Troops included repulsing armed incursions into Soviet territory; preventing illegal crossings of the border or the transport of weapons, explosives, contraband or subversive literature across the border; monitoring the observance of established procedures at border crossing points; monitoring the observance by Soviet and foreign ships of navigation procedures in Soviet territorial waters; and assisting state agencies in the preservation of natural resources and the protection of the environment from pollution. Border guards were authorized to examine documents and possessions of persons crossing the borders and to confiscate articles; to conduct inquiries in cases of violations of the state border; and to take such actions as arrest, search and interrogation of individuals suspected of border violations.

Very nice KGB Border Troops figure Verified Purchase
The “spetsodezdha” camouflage is very well printed. This uniform was typical of the 1980’s, being one of the first modern Soviet uniforms, including a modern combat jacket with 6 external pockets and a version of the traditional KLMK camouflage. The green cap should have been a lighter and brighter green, between grass green and bottle green, but otherwise, the figure looks very nice!
