Military Review


Today, in accordance with the order of the Minister of the Interior of the Russian Federation from March 1 of 2002, Russia is celebrating the Day of the Special Police Force (Special Police Unit). Despite the fact that the term “militia”, due to the reform, has become history, while the police turned into policemen, the riot policemen decided not to touch the abbreviation. Only now, instead of the Special Purpose Police Unit, he became the Special Purpose Mobile Unit.


Riot policemen in Russia were involved and involved not only in measures to protect public order and ensure security at various rallies, processions and other mass events, but also to participate in special operations to counter extremism and terrorism.

Now the Ministry of Internal Affairs numbers over 22 thousands of OMON fighters, many of which are combined into separate structures for solving special tasks. Since March of this year, the ranks of the Russian riot police have replenished with the Crimean "Berkut". The fighters of the "Berkut" became one of the first Crimeans who received Russian citizenship during famous historical events.

After radical splashes on Kiev's Maidan and numerous attempts to implement a similar scenario on the territory of the Russian Federation, the attitude of the citizens of the Russian Federation to the riot police has changed significantly. If you believe the statistics, the number of Russians, who believe that the activities of riot policemen goes to the benefit of the country's security, has grown by almost a third in comparison with 2012 year.

“Military Review” congratulates riot policemen on the holiday and wishes these courageous people to work exclusively within the legal field, contributing to the formation of the security system of Russia.

        I worked with the Nizhny Novgorod riot police, it was cool to consider complaints about their actions ... A trader comes from the Central Market, with a statement, they say, riot police took him from him during the passport check and then on the list ... Well, the authorities cheat you and start check in order of Art. 144-145 of the Criminal Procedure Code of the Russian Federation. You call the riot police, and this is how a complaint was made about the actions of your employees, we are conducting a pre-investigation check. Someone from their superiors comes, gets acquainted with the statement, writes a formal explanation, like: "... they worked in full compliance with the" Law on Police ", they did not use special means, the officers who carried out the raid are currently on a business trip to SevKaz etc.". After that, the next day the merchant comes running and begins plaintively asking to stop the check, since he made a mistake and in general they were not riot police, but almost aliens from Nabiru, and everything on the list was taken from him: "... three gold cigarette cases, three domestic suede jackets, 3 movie cameras ... "he himself has long lost, sold, and then everywhere ... And after that, with a clear conscience, write" abandoned ". And so it was ALWAYS ... Well, something like this ...

      Hmm ... Well, we called goblins a soldier of the emergency service of the SMIS (special motorized police unit). Riot police are incorrectly called so, albeit loving.

          The history of the special forces began in 1988, when, according to the order of the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs, a special police detachment was created [b] (OMON) [/ b] Internal Affairs Directorate of the Kiev City Executive Committee. In 1992, the detachment was reorganized by order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine No. 1 into the Berkut quick-response police regiment of the Kyiv city internal affairs department, which eventually turned into the Berkut special-purpose police regiment of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine in Kiev, "in order to increase the combat readiness of the Berkut special forces "To further improve operational and official activities, increase the efficiency of their work in protecting public order, conducting special operations, localizing and neutralizing criminal groups and armed criminals."

    Happy holiday, brothers !!! I believe that you will not allow repeating Ukrainian ugliness in Russia. As long as riot police exist, I personally am calm for myself. To me, a simple law-abiding citizen of my country, our police are not afraid, and those who do not like our laws and our policies should be felled from the country !!!
    Once again - WITH THE HOLIDAY !!! drinks
