For Federal service the National guard troops of Russia, which in the project of the decree of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin “On the Federal service the national guard troops of the Russian Federation” may be cited as Asgardia, created vosmitonny installation shooting non-lethal grenades, capable of 200 meters to shoot stun and smoke grenades, and also reset the “catchment grid” on protestors.

Referring to the documents of the Ministry of internal Affairs containing information on the development of such a facility, the Agency urban news “Moscow” notes that equipped the unit is a traditional military equipment and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS), consisting on arms of internal troops.

According to technical requirements, the future development will be required to provide a firing range in service of internal troops of the interior Ministry of light and sound and smoke grenades and the shots the irritant at a distance of 200 meters.

“The number of trunks must be at least eight with the possibility of changes in serial production, the boundary of the maximum range of shooting of non-lethal weapons shall not be less than 200 meters, to consider the possibility of mounting non-lethal shots at drones with the purpose of reset of means of restraint in a given area”, – stated in the documents.

Recall that on 5 April the President of Russia Vladimir Putin announced the creation on the basis of internal troops of the interior Ministry units of the OMON and SOBR National guard – security forces, which Western journalists called “the Emperor’s personal army of Putin” to control the elite.

Regardie powers, allowing it to maintain international security

According to the draft presidential decree “On the Federal service the national guard troops of the Russian Federation” published on April 11 on the portal of projects of normative legal acts, the national guard will be abbreviated to be called Asgardia will have its logo, flag and banner, and a new feature Department, compared with the internal forces will be to participate in peacekeeping operations abroad.

The main objectives of Regardie are including participation in the protection of public order, ensuring public safety and emergency regulations; participation in combating terrorism and extremism; participation in the territorial defense of the Russian Federation; protection on a contractual basis property of citizens and organizations; assisting border control authorities of the Federal security service in guarding the state border, transfers “Interfax”.

It was also assumed that the creation of the new unit chosen by chance: Asgardia can help in the fight against dissatisfied with the upcoming parliamentary and presidential elections. This version is supported by experts from U.S. private intelligence analysis company Stratfor, which has described the establishment of Regardie as an attempt by Putin to protect themselves from the coup.
