Sorry for off-topic, but for the accuracy of further discussion: FAGCI
(or FAPSI in Russian) is defunct now for more than four years. Part of
its personnel and assets where transferred under Federal Security
Service (FSB) command (primarily the beforementioned SORM system and
cryptographic service), and another, all militaty assets, -- to the
Joint Staff's Central Intelligence Agency (GRU).

So, all military intelligence gathering and SORM system are now in the
authority of different bodies.
