Centralization means efficiency: Anokhin and Baranets on the creation of the National Guard

April 5, President of RussiaVladimir Putinsubmitted to the State Duma a package of bills on the creation of the National Guard on the basis of the Interior Troops of the Interior Ministry. It was led by an army general.Victor Zolotov, previously held the post of commander in chief of the Internal Troops.

Why was a new power structure created and why now? About this correspondentFederal News Agencytalked with experts.

A blow to local elites

Vice President, Center for Social and Political Studies "Aspect"Irina Alksnisnotes that the creation of the national guard in Russia has been said for more than 10 years. Why did this happen right now?

“Viktor Zolotov was appointed commander-in-chief of the Interior Ministry troops in May 2014, during a sharp aggravation of relations with the West,” reminds the political scientist. - Apparently, they have now decided that in two years he has already sufficiently become familiar.In addition, there may be significant political factors that have affected this. ”

Alksnis tells about one of them in more detail:“Subordination to the president increases the centralization of the entire system. Previously, SOBR and riot police were subordinate to the regional authorities. Now, apparently, a situation has arisen in which the control of absolutely all power structures by the federal center is necessary. The internal security system, in turn, must be under the personal control of the president. ”

The fact is, explains Alksnis, that the opponents of the current state course within the country have a very narrow window of opportunity. They have neither political resources nor support from the masses, but there are certain power resources.

“It’s about stopping the very possibility of using these resources,” the political scientist reflects. - For example, now there is a tough fight against corruption, and regional elites are under fire. Even a hypothetical scenario in which someone from the regional "kings" will try to "bang" using force methods is completely excluded. "

Lessons of the Swamp

Military journalistViktor Baranetsascertains: the forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs are not enough to effectively deal with the sores of society.

“Today there is a great need to create such tools that would respond to the nature of the existing threats: corruption, drug trafficking, street riots. For terrorists can not chase tanks. To cut appendicitis, do not need a chainsaw - enough scalpel "- says the expert.

He also points to the possibility of riots:“You see a great unbridled nationalist groups and national traitorous structures. On the eve of the elections, the activity of all public organizations will increase. But not all of them agree to express their opposition thoughts only within the framework of the law. We remember the lesson of the Swamp ”.

Revolution is coming?

Specialist in military political scienceKonstantin Sivkovalso fears street unrest.

“Today, Russia is on the verge of revolution,” he notes. - In March alone, GDP fell by one percent, and in April a 1.8% drop is projected. Began massive non-payment of wages. Fifth column forces are also being activated. Those forces that announce mass privatization, which dictate the liberal course - they lead to a deterioration of the economic situation. "

In addition to internal aspects, the political scientist recalled the new hot spots: the conflict on the Kazakh-Uzbek border and the military conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.“External and internal conditions lead to riots in the country. That is why the National Guard was created. ”- concludes Sivkov.

Less bureaucracy

Vice President of the Academy of Geopolitical ProblemsVladimir AnokhinConsiders the creation of a new structure to be true and timely:“Western Europe has shown that their attitude to the safety of their citizens is now below any criticism. Therefore, we must reorganize the power structures, taking into account the mistakes of the Europeans. ”

The new structure will be formed from those special forces and federal services that acted separately, and therefore not efficiently enough, Anokhin explains:“For example, the FMS could only fix some violations of the law, and there is no force to influence migrants, especially violent ones”. Now, according to Anokhin, the bureaucratic chain will be reduced several times.

He also dispelled rumors about the "personal presidential detachments":"The president is already the Supreme Commander and all power structures are subordinate to him"- stressed Anokhin.
