The authorities will consider the possibility of legalizing mercenaries in Russia

The leader of the Just Russia - For Truth party, Sergei Mironov, announced that his faction had introduced a bill that allows private military services to be legally carried out on the territory of the Russian Federation.

The politician explained that the initiative aims to legalize the activities of private military companies, since PMCs have become important tools for realizing national interests without the direct participation of the state. Mironov also stressed that companies of this kind will be able to legally, without fear of persecution in the territory of the Russian Federation, protect the rights and lives of citizens abroad.

At the moment, there are no companies of this kind, registered outside the territory of our country. However, information about the existence of the Wagner Group PMC, which provides military services in various countries, primarily African and South American, has been disseminated in the media and among Internet users.

There is no evidence of the real existence of such an organization, all information about it is based on speculation and speculation, in particular, on the information of Radio Liberty (a media outlet recognized as a foreign agent) about the participation of mercenaries of this PMC in the hostilities in the Donbass in 2014, and then in Syria.

The extent to which such an initiative is timely and meets the challenges facing Russia remains to be answered by legislators, as well as ministries responsible for foreign affairs. policies and defense of the country.

    If the "beacon of democracy" the French Republic is allowed to have its own "Foreign Legion", then what prevents Russia from officially registering the same one? Even documentation can be taken from the French. + to this, obtaining Russian citizenship by foreigners after a certain period of service.

    Narrow thinking. And who will control these PMCs? Let's say if their organizer and payer directs them against the Russian Federation? There is an army. There are special forces units, etc. Would this Morozov want to fight? So what's up? Put on a bulletproof vest and forward with songs.
