All,

I'm looking for some background information in Russian on "взрывчатые устройства, изготовленные из подручных средств," or conversationally, "самодельные ВУ."

I have quite a bit of background material on IEDs in English from offical US government sources.

Can anyone provide me with an links to offical Russian government sources? If not, news articles about IEDs in Russian are fine. I'm looking for information on how they're contstructed, utilized, their effects, tactics of using them, etc.

Thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely,
Kurt

Got an assignment coming up in a couple of months. While the topic is current and on everyone's minds (at least in the security business), it's not something I'm personally familar with to a great degree. I appreciate the links. I'm getting a good start on this issue. Thank you.
