Federal Service of the Russian Federation of the National Guard troops will receive a short name: Rosguard (shortened from “Russian Guard” – RRT).

This became known from a draft presidential decree posted on the portal of the preparation and discussion of legal acts.

Vladimir Putin announced the creation of the National Guard last Tuesday. The new structure will be formed based on the Interior Ministry troops.

According to the draft, Rosguard’s task is to participate in the protection of public order, fight against terrorism, extremism, and participation in the territorial defense of the Russian Federation.

In addition, guards will protect important public facilities, assist the Border Service, control over compliance with weapons legislation, and private security.
