Military Review

In the State Duma will make a bill on the legalization of the work of PMCs

60
In Russia, they propose to legalize the creation and operation of private military companies (PMCs). The corresponding bill is planned to be submitted to the State Duma within the next month. The first deputy chairman of the committee for state construction and legislation, Mikhail Emelyanov, told RT about this.


The bill is planned to be submitted within a month. Lavrov's speech encourages us to do this. The situation in Syria has shown the relevance of private military companies - they are excellent for use in such local conflicts. The law will make it possible to attract PMC employees to participate in counter-terrorism operations abroad, to protect the sovereignty of allied states from external aggression. And also to the protection of various objects, including oil and gas fields, railways
 - said Yemelyanov.

In the State Duma will make a bill on the legalization of the work of PMCs


He noted that the activities of such organizations should be licensed by specialized departments. The document will prescribe the concept and objectives of private military companies, the types of their work and services. They will also secure social guarantees for Russians who work for PMCs in Russia and in other states.

Among the planned restrictions for PMCs - a ban on violating sovereignty and changing the borders of states, overthrowing legal authorities, conducting subversive activities, developing, buying or storing weapon mass destruction.

On January 15, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke about the need to protect the interests of Russian citizens who work for private military companies in other states.

Now in Russia there is no legal basis for the activities of PMCs. The idea of ​​creating a PMC system in 2012 was supported by Vladimir Putin, who was then Prime Minister.

In the State Duma Defense Committee are ready to join in the work on a draft law on private military companies. This was announced by RT Chairman of the Committee Vladimir Shamanov.

Over the past year and a half, the issue of PMCs has been raised to one degree or another by individual initiative groups, but the matter has not gone further. We see real practice when developed countries — such as America and a number of others — use PMCs to perform tasks outside their own country. We have this question, I think, was somewhat undervalued. Private military companies - this is a given, from which it is impossible to dismiss ... We are ready to engage in this work.

            Right! This is precisely about private security companies from Gazprom, so that they send their guards, and not hire foreign PMCs. They can’t decide for so many years, and now they begin to think over which year. And naive people think that we are talking about fictitious PMCs of the Russian Federation, from the submission and promotion of the theme of Denis Korotkov from Fontanka :)

      PMCs have long been legalized. If someone is willing to pay, and someone is fighting for money, then why not ?. In the same PMC Wagner, which in fact there are "employees" from different countries. What is not a foreign legion in fact ?. Moreover, I want to remind you that it is NOT forbidden for foreigners to serve in the RF Armed Forces as a law.

          PMC officers in Syria? Which foreign PMCs can accept ours, do you even know? And if ours fall into foreign PMCs, then the laws there work on PMCs specific. If in the country of PMCs such and such is illegal, then all employees of this PMC are criminals! And not only our citizens. And if we are talking about invented PMCs of the Russian Federation (such as Wagner, invented by Denis Korotkov from Fontanka) then it is not funny, but you need to cry already because people believe in such nonsense. Speech, by the way, in the publication of this about private security companies from Gazprom, so that they had the right to send their guards, and not to hire foreigners !!! Some of our guards are sent illegally, for example, they are attached to foreign PMCs

And what about non-mining companies such as Sberbank, Rosatom, VTB, they also have representative offices abroad that may need to be defended, but AvtoVAZ, I represent PMCs on Niva, and PMC Aeroflot on Superjets good

        I'm sorry, what? Just, we are talking about "gas workers" and "oil industry workers" in order to ALLOW them (their private security companies) to carry out their functions abroad. That is, offices lose a lot of money when they hire foreign mercenaries to protect their fields outside of Russia. The adopted PMSC laws will allow sending their guards legally abroad. And what do you think that talking about PMCs as some kind of warrior? Or believe in fairy tales for children about PMC Wagner?

    It is high time to recognize and legalize what has been effective and in fact ... it is our people and the state that must provide them the same rights as other citizens. Especially when they perform tasks precisely in the interests of their native state!

        The state abandons the monopoly on the use of force. And do not be cunning that everything will be under control (under the control of the oligarchs!) - in this case, everyone will decide the money, and the legal framework will be created by good-natured advocates for PMCs!
        The Soviet Union solved all these tasks brilliantly and without PMCs!

    It is high time to transfer Ethl to the legal sphere controlled by the state. And then we are playing a game with international sportsmen, but we are trying to follow gentlemen's rules. This is a universal tool for "promoting and protecting national interests", as our western "partners" like to declare. The only question is why in a country with such a military history and traditions as Russia, this instrument has not been legalized before. Let’s see how the law will prescribe, if only liberoids are not perverted.

And all sorts of invented PMCs Wagner - this is for hamster fools. It’s not in vain that we have had a special service for 9 years, and it was created for: as our western "partners" like to declare. Standards of foreign special forces! In legal status, they thereby departed from illegality, which the GRU had previously decided.

    Not a century has passed ...
    But interestingly, the practice of issuing private owners to countries where PMCs worked, will also be applied? And then the Russian authorities gladly give away the volunteers from Donbass to banderlogs. Well, this is how to give Hitler’s authorities our partisans and scouts that worked behind enemy lines. Like, in a foreign country or in the land they occupied, laws were violated.
    Anything can be expected from the Russian authorities.

        The weapon can be a ballpoint pen, or a fist with a well-set blow.
        The bulk of the stabbing comes from household knives and from the word household they do not become safer.
        The concept of knives simply does not allow citizens to use QUALITY knives, bows, etc.
        And a private blacksmith cannot forge a good knife because someone is “heating up” on licenses.

    It is high time. Many problems from a legal point of view would be solved. But it is the legal ice that is the most subtle. As a high-quality VOKhRA, PMCs are undoubtedly necessary taking into account the expansion of the range of business interests (or, better, the economy) of the Russian Federation. But the “delicate” operations ... To protect the interests and rights of citizens working in PMCs in the Russian Federation is great, but this is a simultaneous recognition of belonging and, in addition to the same VOKhRa, and the situational component as in Syria (the legally elected government recognized by Russia, invites to "work") all the possible tools and limited. Although this is not enough. it’s a pity that it’s impossible to use it under any sauce legally for volunteers in the Donbass, or, God forbid, somewhere else in a similar situation. But as a "magic wand" for many states without wide diplomatic fuss over inviting the regular forces of the Russian Federation, this is simply a superweapon. In addition, after the adoption of the law and the acquisition of status, the presence of Russian PMCs in alarming areas will essentially become a “vaccine” at the level of regular forces. We don’t yet know how meticulously our “peacekeeping managers” are going to defend our state .. Again, this is not a problem about arming these formations. Here in the Russian Federation, light weapons, everything else is “rented” from the employer (and there you can agree and let the Ka-52 buy it to fulfill contractual obligations) .. In short, one positive ... It’s a pity that so much time has passed already .. .
