Media: Private Russian companies will attract for the process of mine clearance in Syria

25
Today is a newspaper "News" It comes out with a material in which it reports on the plans of the country's main defense department for attracting private Russian companies to the process of demining Syrian territories. The newspaper refers to its own sources in the Russian parliament, where the relevant committees of both chambers (defense and security committees) held meetings with the said agenda.


It is reported that there is a working group, which includes representatives of not only the Ministry of Defense, but also special services and the Ministry of Emergency Situations. The group is working on the issues of attracting private commercial structures to demining activities in the SAR. We are talking primarily about large companies that specialize in creating special robotics.

Media: Private Russian companies will attract for the process of mine clearance in Syria


The submission states that in order to obtain accreditation for work in the CAP, contractors will be subject to special verification, and legal and financial issues will also be resolved.

Initially, the project will be jointly funded: 50% will be allocated by Russia, 50% - by Damascus. If you believe the sources of "News", then after a while the Syrian authorities will be fully responsible for the financial side of the operation. All actions to attract private commercial structures from Russia for mine clearance are also coordinated with Damascus.

    Normal private business at the expense of Russian taxpayers for Syria. And can you teach the Syrians to mine their own cities?

      It’s possible ... in ten years ... sapper is a vocation ... and it’s better not to take people with weak nerves and explosive oriental character into sapper units.

          Private business quickly learned kickbacks. The motive for attracting private owners is not clear. Ministry of Defense, but also special services[/ i] and the Ministry of Emergencies can not cope? Ministry of Defense, but also special services and the Ministry of Emergencies[I] Syrian money is not needed? Maybe we have a war and there are not enough people for Syria ?, then why are these private traders not at war?
          It seems that private owners in Russia really need budget money. Russian budget money and Syrian budget money.

            just the motive for attracting private owners is understandable - if during mine clearance, God forbid, what happens to an employee of the Ministry of Defense or the Ministry of Emergencies, then he or his family must be paid for from the budget for life, and the employer is responsible for the risk of private owners ...

            Retirees work for private traders and what's wrong with being attracted to their usual work? Plus a bonus to the state described by DMoroz. Or do you think it is reasonable to maintain a large staff of military sappers who have nothing to do in peacetime? It is forbidden to involve the military in commercial activities.

      So they are taught by our specialists, after which the Syrians are actively involved in mine clearance under the supervision of our specialists. Regarding the involvement of private companies - there is no superfluous help.

    I understand that the private trader will come, say, to restore the destroyed settlements, but I will not believe that the private trader even sacrificed employees for money, for mine clearance! But what, our sapper robots are not so good, or terribly expensive to operate, that they have to wait until their private uncle blinds them and send them to mine in Syria ???

      Perhaps there will be robots, but they will attract the right people with good money, without them there is no way. Yes, that's just to clear the entire ATS for decades, and the war there does not want to end.

    Honestly - this is the usual departure of money to the side, in other words - theft. It is clear that there will be specialists, there will be robotics (obviously you have to pay for this), and who will calculate the rest ?! And what, the Russian Armed Forces, are no longer able to cope with this? In addition, "the fish swims where deeper ... (and from the current is inevitable)." In short, the RF Armed Forces should deal with this.

      This should be done by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

      They don’t owe anyone! This should be done by those who put them. Barmaley prisoners sent to mine, and not to mothers under the skirts!

      Everything is muddy, most likely they don’t want big losses among the military and for this they attract private owners like Wagner.

        That's right ... Wagnerites suffered losses in SYRIA, but for our army this is not critical ... besides, they performed delicate operations in which it would be better for our army not to shine ... with private sapper units it will be the same.

    Maybe someone will have enough to pay their international political points at the expense of ordinary people ?! We help everyone, forgive everyone, and who doesn’t even need our people, who will create jobs ?! There is no news about this, but every year the old taxes and fees are raised and new ones are introduced to pay for this whole theater.

      I especially liked this one ...
      The Russians will be offered to pay a monthly death tax. As conceived by the ritualists, these deductions will provide every working citizen with a worthy funeral. A compulsory death insurance document, like SNILS, may soon appear in every Russian. Experts in the ritual field proposed the introduction of a “death tax,” which guarantees a person worthy seeing off to another world after death.
      According to industry workers, the guaranteed list of funeral services is now too scarce and does not meet the needs of citizens. In the new draft law "On Burial and Funeral", the RF Ministry of Construction intends to solve this problem by recalculating the amount of the corresponding payment and increasing it. But, according to experts, this measure is not enough, and the Russians themselves must take care of a worthy death - for example, using monthly deductions from the moment they get to work. Well, etc.

        you need a “collection for euthanasia”, after reaching retirement age, Russians are subject to euthanasia and during the working hours they should form the amounts on their personal account that will be spent on euthanasia and subsequent processing of the citizen’s body into dog food laughing

      except as Art. 359 of the Criminal Code - mercenary and Art. 208 of the Criminal Code - the organization of an illegal armed formation - no ... request
      But in essence, they exist - Redut-Anti-Terror, RSB-Group, Tiger Top Rent Security, etc., further, the own power structures of the oil and gas industry are also essentially PMCs, as from a private security company they grew up.

    It’s clear that we are talking about humanitarian demining, something like the processes that took place in the late 90s and early 2000s in the territory of the former Yugoslavia, where private or semi-state companies were engaged in demining (by the way, there were specialists from Ukraine too ), financing then occurred joint-local republics and the World Bank. As for our participation in mine clearance in Syria, I personally do not mind that private companies affiliated with the Ministry of Emergency Situations make money, in the end this is a voluntary matter and let our reserve colleagues make money. However, I do not want this to be at the expense of you and I, as taxpayers, because I have no doubt that this time no one will pay for this except for Syria and Russia! In general, Baba Yaga is against! As for the arguments about running in robots, etc. etc. , then we still have enough work on mine clearance in Chechnya, and there it’s worth training!

    In vain: Syria must be cleared by the Syrians trained in the Russian Federation. To destroy Russian guys in Syria is another Kremlin stupidity, if not a crime ...
