Gazprom buduje vlastní armádu

Russia's Parliament has given gas giant Gazprom the right to form armed units to patrol the country's oil and gas pipelines.

Imagine that… A private company sports it’s own private military.

The law, backed by 341 deputies in the 450-seat State Duma (the lower house of the Russian Parliament), gives the two state-controlled giants Gazprom and Transneft, Russia’s pipeline monopoly, the right to employ and arm their own security units.

Russian authorities claim the law protects critical Russian infrastructure against militant attacks. That’s certainly one way to look at it. I’m not quite sure which militant would be brazen enough to attack Vladimir Putin’s greatest national (probably personal) asset. But then again, I’m no militant.

Alexander Gurov, one of the deputies who drafted the law, said: “A couple of terrorist acts and an ensuing ecological catastrophe would be enough to immediately declare Russia an unreliable partner and supplier of energy resources.”
