Soviet Border Troops, (Пограничные войска СССР, Pogranichnyye Voiska SSSR) were the militarized border guard of the Soviet Union, subordinated to its subsequently reorganized state security agency: first to Cheka/OGPU, then to NKVD/MGB and, finally, to KGB. Accordingly, they were known as NKVD Border Troops and KGB Border Troops (with Russian abbreviations - НКВД СССР/- КГБ СССР added on the end of official names).. Unlike border guards of many other countries, Soviet Border Troops also included the maritime borderguarding units (i.e., a coast guard)..The mission of the Border Troops included repulsing armed incursions into Soviet territory; preventing illegal crossings of the border or the transport of weapons, explosives, contraband, or subversive literature across the border; monitoring the observance of established procedures at border crossing points; monitoring the observance by Soviet and foreign ships of navigation procedures in Soviet territorial waters; and assisting state agencies in the preservation of natural resources and the protection of the environment from pollution.

A bus driver, bus operator or omnibus driver is a person who drives buses professionally. Bus drivers typically drive their vehicles between bus stations or stops. They often drop off and pick up passengers on a predetermined route schedule. In British English a different term, coach driver (or coach captain), is used for drivers on long-distance routes, tours and school trips..Those giraffes you sold me, they won't mate. They just walk around eating, and not mating..AN investigation is underway after dozens of pupils were left stranded by a bus driver as taff drove them home from school..The BearLine students from Ysgol Brynhyfryd in Ruthin had already paid for their fares when their driver turned back stopped the bus vehicle outside the grounds and “walked off”.. And gentlemen, unless you wish to be free of the confines of your duties, this never happened..In Russia and some other post-Soviet states the Border Troops retained some Soviet traditions, most notably the green shoulder boards on their uniforms and "Border Guard's Day" ( День пограничника), an official holiday celebrated both by active service and former border guards..The dismantling of this stretch of the Berlin Wall in 1989 was the first time that British soldiers (62 Transport and Movement Squadron, Royal Corps of Transport and Royal Engineers) based in the British Sector had worked directly with the former East German army.H G Vs belonging to the transport squadron were provided to carry sections of the concrete wall away to an area near Potsdam...Shadows and dust... observations are correct.. It is indeed night..I go all over. I take people to the Bronx, Brooklyn, I take 'em to Harlem. I don't care. Don't make no difference to me.. It does to some.. Some won't even take spooks.. Don't make no difference to You..Look at it this way..A man takes a job-That becomes what he is..You know...
