Was given this patch sometime ago, can't identify it, Russian kid at work said it has something to do with security.
Maybe someone out there can help me out?
Here's some websites I've been going through looking for that patch. ???

The FSK was a state security organization, initially of the USSR, and, after its dissolution, of the Russian Federation. The FSK was the successor organization to the KGB. It existed from 1991 to 1995, when it was reorganized into the FSB
