Operation "Satan" (Operatsiya "Satana") is a 2018 Russian detective TV series. In 1975 Militsiya Maj. Ivan Petrovich Tcherkasov (Andrey Smolyakov) is fired from Moscow Ugolovny Rozysk and continues his service as a district inspector. But he finds himself involved in the counterintellegence operation against an American agent who hunts for the secrets of the newest Soviet intercontinental ballistic missile R-36M (the NATO codename SS-18 Satan, hence the title of the series).

Operatsiya "Satana" is the fifth installment in the TV series about detective Ivan Tcherkasov.

The following weapons were used in the television series Operation "Satan" (Operatsiya "Satana"):


Makarov PM

Makarov PM pistols are service sidearms of Militsiya personnel. They are seen in hands of Maj. Ivan Petrovich Tcherkasov (Andrey Smolyakov), Capt. Sonya Timofeeva (Marina Aleksandrova), and Sr. Lt. Aleksey Garkusha (Aleksey Bardukov). Unlike other series about Tcherkasov, the PMs in Operatsiya "Satana" are original guns, not less-lethal versions.
