CIS security services to track Syria mercenaries-FSB

According to the FSB, some 200 mercenaries from Russia, as well as from CIS
member states and Europe, are fighting in Syria's civil war. The FSB chief
said, "They [mercenaries] pose a severe danger. It is highly important to
track their movements."

Curioso que Ria Novosti no comente nada acerca de los rusos trabajando para Assad.

Siria es un proxy para Rusia, tiene que utilizar todos los medios indirectos posibles para sofrenar el avance (también indirecto) de la Nato sobre sus zonas de amortiguación en torno a su periferia, que ponen en jaque, dejan muy expuestos y vulnerables, sus núcleos vitales.

Habría que preguntarse en ese caso porque Arabia Saudí y Sudán están reponiendo sus stocks de armamento de origen ruso a toda velocidad, cuando acaban en manos del FSA y otros grupos anti-Assad.

O qué hacen dos PMCs rusas en Jordania ahora mismo :roll:

Un movimiento interesante por parte del régimen de Assad.

Syria's Assad 'legalises' private security firms escribió:Syria's president has passed a decree legalising private security firms, faced with a 29-month armed revolt against his rule that has pinned down the police, state news agency SANA reported today.

President Bashar al-Assad's decree regulates "licencing for private companies that provide protection and guard duties ... To ensure the safety of individuals, establishments, property and the transport of cash, jewels and precious metals," said SANA.

One-year renewable licences are to be issued by the interior ministry, it said, but only to Syrian nationals with capital of more than USD 250,000.

"The interior minister will define the categories of arms to be used by each company, ranging from revolvers to rifles and others," said the agency.

The decree also stipulates that each company will be licenced to recruit between 300 and 800 guards.

A security source said that guards will have to wear a uniform, while the decree will allow security companies to open offices and issue employees with hand arms.

"Security guards will be in charge of protecting prominent personalities and businesses, while securing the transport of money," the source said on condition of anonymity.

Before Syria's conflict broke out in mid-March 2011, "these tasks were mainly assigned to the police. But because of the situation, now the police has other tasks," he added.

Alongside the anti-Assad uprising, Syria has been plagued by a spike in crime, kidnappings and robberies.

Y al mismo tiempo.

Russia’s corporate armies may be on the way back escribió:Russia’s lower house, the State Duma, has passed in the first reading a bill that allows state energy corporations Gazprom and Transneft to maintain extensive armed security forces. This reflects a steady rollback of previous efforts to cut down on the proliferation of private security forces in Russia but may also reflect an interest in moving into the global private military services industry.

The 1990s saw a massive expansion in the private security sector as well as the emergence of virtual corporate armies. However, since Vladimir Putin’s rise to power, there has been a steady campaign to consolidate and control the non-state security sector. The private security industry, which is worth over $7 billion a year, has far fewer rights to use lethal weapons, while corporate protection services are similarly limited.

The energy sector, it should be noted, has traditionally had greater leeway, reflecting both its power within the political system and also its need to secure facilities and pipelines which are often remote and sometimes in volatile regions. In 2007, both companies were again allowed to issue lethal weapons to their security personnel. However, Draft Law 244239-6 “On Amendments To Some Legislative Acts Of The Russian Federation On The Establishment Of Departmental Security To Ensure The Safety Of The Fuel And Energy Complex,” will free them of further constraints, including on the scale and use of lethal weaponry.

This follows a pattern of a gradual return to the militarization of the economy. In 2011, Putin indicated that his government might reverse its previous policy and support the creation of Russian private military companies — mercenary organizations — as “a way of implementing national interests without the direct involvement of the state.

This underlines the Kremlin’s belief that expanding the Russian private security industry is not first and foremost a reflection of legitimate market needs but a tool of statecraft. Gazprom and Transneft already operate in volatile regions — including the North Caucasus, where until now the Chechen government has maintained its own “Oil Regiment” to protect pipelines. However, allowing them to build their own armed security forces will not only reduce the burden on state security forces. It also paves the way towards the creation of private military contractors, since even in 2011 it was understood that these would probably be created on the basis of the security arms of state and semi-private energy companies. This may therefore be the first step in Russia’s entry into the military contractor market for “kinetic solutions” to the world’s problems.

El borrador de la ley 244239-6 está disponible (en ruso) aquí.

Novedad importante proveniente de Kavkaz Center, por lo que hay que tomar la información con cuidado.

Ha habido combates en Homs entre fuerzas del ISIS, y tropas de Assad apoyadas por rusos de la empresa Slavonic Corps, aseguraban haber eliminado a varios rusos y han presentado fotografías de la documentación de uno de ellos:

Russian mercenaries eliminated in Syria's Homs (photo, video, documents) escribió:KC sources report on a successful military operation of the Mujahideen of the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS) in the Syria’s Homs governorate.

Assault forces attacked a group of infidels in the town of Al-Sukhnah. A major checkpoint was captured and another 2 were surrounded in the course of a successful attack. The fighting continues.

The KC sources report that the Mujahideen have eliminated more than 100 Assadites and Shiites.

Russian mercenaries were also among the eliminated. The name of at least one Russian infidel is established for sure. This is a certain Aleksei Malyuta from Abinsk, Russia’s Krasnodar Territory.

The captured documents reveal that the recruitment of Russian mercenaries for Syria’s Assad regime is carried out by a Hong Kong-based Slavonic Corps Limited. The General Director of the company is a certain S. V. Kramsky.
There are no exact figures on the number of Russian mercenaries fighting on the side of the Assad regime. This is the first documentary evidence that Russian infidels are taking part in the fighting on the side of Assad.

Here are the captured photos and video files.

Exclusive: How Russian mercenaries are manning Syria's air defenses escribió:Last week, anti-government activists in Syria posted a shaky video on YouTube showing an ungainly military vehicle crawling along the desert near Damascus, spewing clouds of blue smoke and churning up dust. The vehicle is a high-tech Russian-built anti-aircraft system, designed to shoot down airplanes and missiles up to 30 miles away.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has more than a hundred of these massive weapons in his arsenal, and they comprise only part of his vast, Russian-built missile defense system. As the White House inches closer to bombing Syria over the regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons, and as Moscow continues to act an intermediary for its ally in Damascus, an important complication has been lost in the hubbub: There are Russian contractors on the ground in Syria, and they could become American targets, according to military experts and former intelligence officers.

“There are Russian technicians manning those anti-aircraft missiles,” a former high ranking U.S. intelligence officer tells Vocativ.

The presence of these technicians, analysts say, means the odds are good that Russian personnel could be killed in a protracted American bombing campaign. It also means that things could get messy fast. After all, it’s one thing to “fire a shot across the bow,” as Obama recently said, explaining the nature of the possible strike. But it’s quite another to kill the citizens of a former Cold War adversary in a military operation that the world doesn’t seem to support. As another former CIA official put it: “What happens when you hit a bunch of Russians?”

That question may soon be answered. Decades ago, the Soviet Union built up Syria’s missile defenses, as part of its alliance with Assad’s father, Hafez. But in 2007, the younger Assad went shopping in Moscow, buying up weapons in droves, says Pieter Wezeman, a senior researcher at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, a Sweden-based think tank. The Syrians seemed to purchase anything they could get their hands on: hundreds of shoulder-held missiles, along with short-, mid- and long-range anti-aircraft missile defense systems. (One system known as the S-300 can hit a target from nearly a hundred miles away, though the Russians may not have delivered it yet.) “It’s all layered,” explains an international arms consultant.

The reason the Syrians need the Russian technicians on the ground, the consultant adds, is that air defense isn’t like a home stereo system: You can’t just plug in the power chord and press “on.” The Russians are there to make sure the systems are working together effectively; they’re the only ones on the ground with the proper technical expertise. “This is standard,” says Wezeman. “It is important in places like Syria, where there’s no advanced technology infrastructure.”


A spokesman for Almaz Antey, the Russian company that manufactures Assad’s anti-aircraft systems, says the firm has no technicians deployed in Syria. Yet Wezeman, the arms contractor and four former senior U.S. intelligence officers are certain there are Russian technicians on the ground, ensuring that Assad’s high-tech weaponry functions properly.

These technicians aren’t the only Russians in Syria right now. Moscow, for instance, has a naval base in Tartus, an Assad stronghold in the eastern part of the country. But it’s extremely unlikely that the U.S. would target the base for fear of killing Russians in uniform.

More at risk are the Russian technicians, who will be manning Syria’s missile defense systems. Experts say the most dangerous place to be when a war begins is at the helm of an anti-aircraft missile battery. In a sustained air campaign, these batteries tend to be the first targets.

If an American bombing campaign against Syria kills Russians in the process, no one really knows how Russian President Vladimir Putin will react. While some worry things could spiral, others think Moscow would simply shrug. “The Russians think even less about their contractors than we think about our contractors,” says the arms consultant.

But Russian deaths could work in Putin’s favor. “The Russians will make a big deal of it, more of a big deal than it is,” says a former Defense Department intelligence official.

Either way, a new sort of big deal has emerged in the form of a diplomatic overture from Moscow. On Monday, U.S. President Barack Obama expressed at least some interest in a Russian proposal for Syria to hand over its chemical weapons stockpiles to avert an American attack. ”It’s…a potentially positive development,” Obama said of the proposal. “If it’s real.”

Y más fotografías de documentación perteneciente a Aleksei Maliuta, esta vez aparece el nombre de la empresa Moran Security Group, que curiosamente tiene oficinas muy cerca de donde se registró en 2012 Slavic Corps.

Vaya, también es curioso que las dos compañias estén adscritas al ICoC y una de ellas a SAMI, pero con web cutres a mas no poder, como hechas de un dia para otro, y sus cometidos en Siria poco claro: manejan antiaereos (imagino para proteger alguna instalación, no? :mrgreen: )
Ah, no, que ya lo dijo el presi:
President Bashar al-Assad's decree regulates "licencing for private companies that provide protection and guard duties ... To ensure the safety of individuals, establishments, property and the transport of cash, jewels and precious metals," said SANA.

"The interior minister will define the categories of arms to be used by each company, ranging from revolvers to rifles and others," said the agency.

Una pregunta...¿al ICoC pagas y presentas una declaración de buena fé diciendo que respetas, respetarás y haras todo lo bueno y nada malo, etc y ya está? ¿ o por el contrario hay un seguimiento real de las 708 compañias que están en la asociación?
No sé, poco claro está el asunto del contratistas rusos, sabiendo como Rusia suele apoyar a sus colegas/intereses... 8)

Basta con enviar un formulario para estar "autorizado" en demasiados sitios, hay empresas unipersonales que están registradas en todos los listados, aunque no realicen ninguna actividad más allá de permitir a su dueño hacer de experto en alguna conferencia.

Las webs de las PMCs rusas son siempre curiosas, muchas fotografías de unidades occidentales. En el caso de Moran Security aseguran estar trabajando desde 1999, y la descripción de algunos de sus trabajos parece ir más allá de tareas de protección.

En el caso de los técnicos rusos que están trabajando en Siria me inclino por el que forman parte del paquete de armas y servicios que Rusia está vendiendo a Assad desde 2011. Sistemas complejos como tecnología de radares y misiles antiaéreos tardan años en estar en condición de Combat Ready, y Assad está pagando muchísimo dinero para tenerlo todo disponible, es incluso probable que sean unidades militares completas, con sus propios sistemas, que reciben un cambio de pintura y de documentación, y se alistan como unidades sirias. El coste económico para Assad tiene que ser altísimo, pero para él es una cuestión de supervivencia, y Rosoboronexport debe andar repartiendo dinero para que desde Rusia se hagan todos los esfuerzos a nivel diplomático por mantener este impasse, además de que en el plano estratégico está claro quien sería el primero en poner tropas (y contratistas) para actuar como mediador si la solución de un desarme por todas las partes se consigue imponer.

Seguimiento de quien cumple las normas, lo que se dice seguimiento.... nada de nada, principalmente porque no hay una manera de obligar a las empresas a pasar ningún tipo de información sobre resultados, y todas callarían como se ha hecho siempre.

¿Alguien tiene enlace a medios de prensa rusos que hayan hablado de la muerte de Aleksei Maliuta?
