MOSCOW, December 10 (Itar-Tass) — First Deputy Defence Minister Colonel-General Arkady Bakhin said he will run the activity of military police, which is being created in Russia.
“I will coordinate the activity of military police. Its creation will be based on involving professionally trained people – from officers to contract soldiers, who will pull the guard every 24 hours combined with combat training,” Bakhin told journalists on Monday.
The general stressed that military police would also deal with guarding depots, arsenals and the ministry’s bases. “The involvement of professionals will allow us to make their service more effective. But we are not going to encroach upon the activity of investigative and supervisory bodies,” the first deputy defence minister stressed.
In his words, an experiment will be conducted on the base of the Alabino military post, Moscow region.
At the same time, Bakhin said military police would be fully viable when the legal base was formed.
