MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov did not rule out the list of Russian embassies, guarded by special units, may have new positions.
Inner conflicts continue in certain countries, and they involve special units.
"Nowadays, twelve countries have units of the kind," he said in an interview with NTV's weekly program on Sunday. "As we proceed with analysing the situation, we jointly with specialists from intelligence services will consider if the list should have new positions."
"Of course, we wish this list were not expanded, but this does not depend on us," the minister said.
"I some cases, we use private security companies in the countries, mostly to have them guard along the outer border of the territory," Lavrov continued. "Occasionally, we may attract them to escort the embassies’ personnel for certain events, if there are reasons for that."
However, he continued, it is impossible to foresee all cases.
"Life is more complicated than any approaches," he said. "We undertake all measures, which we consider necessary.".
