I think one should mention book "Spetsnaz" by Victor Suvorov here, including their training to kill, which starts from killing a pregnant cat with bare hands, and killing of dogs and killing people prisoners called "gladiators" (that was in Aquarium (Suvorov)).Biophys (talk) 23:35, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

- It reads like an advertisement for Deadliest Warrior — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:34, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
I agree, it was obviously written by a Russian who speaks English, needs an English speaker who speaks Russian to clean it up.
As Wikipedia already has separate good-quality articles for both GRU and Spetsnaz, both of which detail the links between the two, I don't really see the point of this one. I'd also warn that while "Viktor Suvorov" is a very good source for anyone wanting to know about the life of a Soviet Motor Rifle officer in the 60s and 70s, when he talks abot anything beyond that he's pretty much just making it up.--FergusM1970Let's play Freckles 18:45, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
These other two articles are hardly good, and I see no point in even considering merging (why?) not to mention deleting (???). It's also no longer a GRU force. --Niemti (talk) 21:41, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
- I am aware what spetsnaz means, BUT the way it's presented is all over the place and confusing. What I meant with the merger is to have one page about russian special forces, history, branches, commands, et.Lugnuthemvar (talk) 08:12, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
You sure are confused. It's like coming with "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Navy_SEALs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Navy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_special_operations_forces are pretty much the same. separating them causes nothing but confusion." What exactly caused your confusion? --Niemti (talk) 11:56, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
- No. Separating Spentsnaz Gru from Gru is like separating the [CIA] from the [SAD ]. the difference is, there isn't enough info to go around to justify a separate page. Lugnuthemvar (talk) 12:18, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
- But if you want to stay with the SEALs, it's like saying the [SEALs] aren't part of [United States Naval Special Warfare Command]. they belong on the same page Lugnuthemvar (talk) 12:23, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
