Tasked with guarding the Turkish border, this unit was stationed in Khichauri, Ajaria (part of the Georgian SSR), and belonged to the Trans-Caucasian Border Guard District. After the disintegration of the USSR, it remained at the Turkish border for a while by the mutual agreement with the newly independent Republic of Georgia, and was then withdrawn to Russia and eventually moved to Orsk at the border with Kazakhstan where it became Orskiy Border Guard Unit.
