The State Duma continues to work on a bill on the status of PMCs
The State Duma continues to work on a bill on the status of private military companies (PMCs). Currently, there is no specifics - different points of view on this issue are being considered. This was announced by the chairman of the State Duma Defense Committee Andrei Kartapolov.
According to Kartapolov, quoted TASS, this issue is relevant and the federal executive authorities are interested in completing the work on the relevant bill. Considering that the situation associated with the use of such structures may change over time, it is a fundamentally important issue to designate the place of PMCs within the legal framework. Based on this, the drafting of a bill on the status of PMCs can be completed no earlier than autumn.
Earlier it was reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree according to which members of paramilitary groups protecting the interests of our country with weapons in hands, must be sworn in to the military oath with all the ensuing circumstances.
Thus, since August 25, 2023, there are no longer any PMCs on the territory of Russia, since a sworn soldier must directly report to the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the RF Armed Forces and act exclusively in the interests of the Russian Federation and in no other.
The PMCs that currently exist on the territory of Russia can be reorganized into special units, or disbanded altogether.
