    The "Sneg Module-0" winter insulated suit issued to MVD OMON troops in the 1993-1995 period. Made by the Special Materials lab in St. Petersburg - NPO-SM.

    Also acquired this unknown type of officer-style faux-fur lined jacket. As far as I'm aware, this is a stand-alone with no separate trousers:

    The "sharp-edge" style of "SMK" pattern implies that this was made prior to 1996. The change to the softer edge print happened sometime that year and allegedly involved using a different textile supplier, so that's one way to date these types.
