The Duma defense Committee adopted its opinion on the presidential bill on the National guard. The conclusion is available .
Present at the meeting of the Committee, representatives of internal troops agreed that the bill “needs polishing”, the interlocutor told the Committee.

The profile Committee on safety, according to the calendar of consideration of questions, I propose to consider it in the first reading on 18 may.

In addition, the President’s bill does not take into account the need for the use of edged weapons in separate incidents when animal attack, to stop the vehicle and destruction of locking devices, is written in the document.
The Committee considers that the bill needs to be complemented by the indication of the specialization of structural units in the national guard. Now the document does not contain these details, so “it is not clear what kinds of divisions of troops of the national guard will be, for example, together with the bodies of internal Affairs to maintain public order, to participate in the fight against extremism and terrorism…” etc., reads the conclusion.
The lack of detail in the Committee’s view, impede the transfer of connections and military units of the guard in operational control of the internal Affairs bodies. It is also proposed to highlight the powers of the President to assert the Statute of troops of the national guard, the Statute on military councils of armies and the regulation on operational-territorial associations of national guard troops. To ensure uninterrupted control of troops need to amend the law with reference to the authority’s direct control of national guard troops.
