In Bashkiria, the second volunteer battalion named after Alexandra Dostovalova to participate in a special operation in Ukraine. Over a hundred applications received. This was reported in the regional public organization “Veterans of the airborne troops and special forces of the republic”, which initiated the formation of the battalion.

“Now they are already in the process of passing the selection. Our veterans, former military and ordinary guys who have completed military service, cannot stand aside and enroll in the Bashkir battalions, wanting to help their own, ”the message says.

First Bashkir battalion named after General Shaimuratova undergoes combat coordination, and then will become part of the “O” unit. Under the designation “O” – “Brave” – ​​the grouping of the Central Military District of Russian troops operates. This formation has been participating in a military special operation in Ukraine since February.

Many units formed on a volunteer basis take part in the special operation in Ukraine. Including – on a territorial-national basis. In battles, they show themselves perfectly. But the question arises: what will happen to them after the end of the special operation? What if one of our native governors wants, looking at the Ukrainian oligarch Kolomoiskyformer governor of the Dnepropetrovsk region, to acquire his own small but effective army? A bad example is contagious.

Okay, if not the governor, just a local nouveau riche, bloated with a sense of his own greatness, decides to play big politics with the support of the “trunks”? And in general, how easy will it be to disarm people who have been in extreme conditions and send them home, to lead the lives of peaceful inhabitants?

Why disarm them? – answered a question with a question military expert Viktor Litovkin. – For example, Chechen units are part of the Russian Guard, they existed even before the special operation in Ukraine. Then they will continue to serve as they served. There is nothing special here. The Bashkir battalion is a volunteer one, I cannot say how interaction will be carried out there. But why not create such battalions? National units in Russia still existed under the tsars. And during the Great Patriotic War they were. I see no obstacles for such formations to exist in the Russian modern army.

joint venture»: – But Ukraine has experience in creating quite combat-ready units that belonged to the oligarchs. Wouldn’t ours want “fat cats” to follow a tempting example?

– No, It is Immpossible. There were private armies in Ukraine. And in our country, all units are part of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. Here the Chechen units are sometimes called the “army Kadyrov”, but they obey him because he is a general of the National Guard. He commands the garrison, he commands these troops. All this is completely official. We do not have private armies. And even more so, they cannot have tanks, planes, hypersonic missiles that the army has.

Volunteer units formed in the Russian regions to participate in a special operation cannot be classified as mercenaries, which make up both PMCs and private armies, believes special services veteran Vasily Vereshchak.

– A private company is recruiting mercenaries – people who are ready to risk their lives. What tasks will be set before them is another matter.

There are a lot of PMCs among the British and Americans. All of Africa is stuffed with them! They are afraid to stick out their armies, because in this case there will be a diplomatic conflict. Therefore, “private traders” are involved. This is a global practice, mercenaries operate all over the world. But in Russia their activities are not provided for by law. In addition, I emphasize, the main thing for PMCs is to make money. And those volunteer units that are now being created in Russia, including in regions like Bashkiria and Chechnya, have an ideology. That is, young people are prepared to perform certain tasks, carry out educational work, instill appropriate moral and ethical values. And not just give money and send it to hell.

Major General Aptiy Alaudinov, commander of the Akhmat special unit (which is part of the “Chchechen regiment”) said that people of different nationalities who came from different regions of Russia serve under him. And he confirmed that before getting into the detachment, young people first undergo appropriate training. And they don’t want to be on the front lines to make money.

“We are fighting for our spiritual values, against Nazism. We are visited by those who are close to the ideas that we defend,” said the general, who was awarded the title of Hero of Russia for the courage and heroism shown during the special military operation in the territories of the Luhansk People’s Republic and Ukraine.

Yes, an important point: in March of this year, a draft law on private military companies was submitted to the State Duma, according to which their activities are allowed outside the Russian Federation. The document defines the legal relations associated with the creation and activities of PMCs. Licensing, control and supervision, according to him, should be dealt with by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

According to the authors of the initiative, PMCs, if the law brings them out of the shadows, they are able to protect the rights and freedoms of Russian citizens abroad, defend the national interests of the Russian Federation, ensure the safety of employees of Russian companies on the territory of foreign states with a difficult military-political situation, and much more. more.

The explanatory note to the bill stated that there are currently several hundred private military companies in the world, employing more than a million people. But this bill has not yet become law.
