Private military companies may appear in Russia. Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin announced this today at a meeting of the Military Industrial Commission / MIC / under the government of the Russian Federation.
“Today we are considering the issue of forming an interdepartmental working group on the problem of creating private military companies in the Russian Federation (PMCs),” Rogozin said. One of the tasks of the working group, he continued, "will be the preparation of private business initiatives in the field of defense and security," as well as an assessment of the main trends of the world market.
As for the expediency of creating PMCs in Russia, then, according to Rogozin, this is a difficult question and a discussion will be held on this matter. In any case, “we will make a step in this direction,” he noted.
