Soviet partisan united formation (1941—1944) (Belarusian: партызанскае злучэнне united formation), also called military-operational group or centre (Belarusian: ваенна-аператыўная група (ВАГ)), was one of the organisational forms of the Soviet partisan units, which united at least several of the smaller partisan units: partisan brigades or regiments or detachments and were to conduct the wide-scaled and center-coordinated military operations in the German rear.
Units of that kind were organised by the Soviet ruling bodies of the higher level and commanded usually by the local Communist leaders or by the higher Red Army officers. Managed by the staffs of the respective united formations.
