How the KGB dealt with terrorists

The reason why the National Party Government in South Africa was unable to suppress the violent unrest that grew greater and greater during the 1980s was that they were a party of devout Christians who would not use utter brutality. The Communists in the USSR had no such scruples, which is why they had no problems, for example, with hijackers.

Here is an interesting story from the Guardian, dated January 07, 1986:

JERUSALEM — The KGB has adopted novel, brutal and apparently effective methods of dealing with terrorists who attack Soviet interests in the Middle East, an Israeli newspaper reported Monday.
The Jerusalem Post said the Soviet secret police last year secured the release of three kidnaped Soviet diplomats in Beirut by castrating a relative of a radical Lebanese Shia Muslim leader, sending him the severed organs and then shooting the relative in the head.
Vladimir Putin and Ramzan Kadyrov, the boss of the Chechnya, continue this KGB tradition. Kadyrov's Chechens work undercover in Islamist groups. 

Mossad, I understand, are equally brutal.
