ST. PETERSBURG, April 7. /TASS/. It is impossible so far to specify the timeframe of the beginning of full-fledged operation of Russia’s new Federal Agency for the National Guard Troops, as the process of the regulatory framework improvement is underway, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday, answering a corresponding question.
According to him, the Russian president’s related decree envisages June 2016. "However, due to the need to settle the issues of the regulatory and legislative framework improvement, certainly, nobody can say exactly how much time it will take," the Kremlin official said.
"Naturally, nobody will wait until the legislation is improved. There is the work and the agency will, certainly, get started earlier, but hardly anybody can name the exact dates at this point," Peskov said.
Putin ordered on Tuesday to create the National Guard in reorganization of the Interior Ministry troops to combat terrorism, protect public order and guard important state facilities. The bill submitted to the lower house of Russia’s parliament regulates the activity of the country’s National Guard.
