Poisk Student Scouting Forces was established on March 7 of 2005. The party is a participant of all-Russian social movement aimed at perpetuating the memory of the fallen while defending the Motherland entitled “Scouting Movement of Russia”.
The Forces unit was created in order to assist governmental bodies and local authorities in implementing activity for preservation and perpetuation of the memory of the fallen in various years while defending the Motherland and fulfilling the military and duty call, as well as it is targeted at civic-and-patriotic and spiritual-and-moral education of the university students.
The Forces consist of students who care about the destiny of those who sacrificed their lives for the Motherland during the Great Patriotic War. The first commander of the Forces was the initiator of its establishment, student of the Automobile and Tractor Faculty, Andrey Platonov.
As part of Chelyabinsk regional division of the Scouting Movement of Russia, the Forces carry out scouting activities in order to reveal unknown war graves and unburied remains; they also identify names of the fallen or names and fates of those who went missing while defending the Motherland, and help searching for their relatives.

Within the years of its existence, the Forces took part in seven all-Russian Memory Watch, during which remains of more than 200 soldiers of the Red Army, state decorations and personal belongings of fighters were found and reburied. Seven death medallions were found. By three of the medallions, names of the fallen soldiers were identified; by two of them, relatives of missing in action were found. In 2018, scouts of the Forces installed a memorial plaque on the site of discovering the remains of sergeant Sergey Perlov and nine soldiers of the Red Army, found in the course of Memory Watch – 2017.
For significant contribution to determining the names of the fallen and the fates of those soldiers who gone missing in action, the first commander of the Forces, Andrey Plstonov, was awarded a decoration “For distinguished scouting activity”.
