Nemtsov to appoint the state's bodyguards

July 27 2009

From now on security co-chair of Solidarity "will provide employees of the Federal Security Service. If the opposition leaders believe that their lives are in danger, the state is obliged to take them under his protection.

A curious incident occurred on Sunday with Boris Nemtsov. According to the publication , driver 49-year old politician Dmitry Petukhov drove the car of his boss at the car park to the house in the Little Ordynka, where he lives Nemtsov. Before we report on the execution of the head, the driver inspected the car and noticed that to the bottom of chic "Range Rover" Nemtsov attached tape a small package. Dmitry immediately called his boss, who has in turn called the police.

In place of the alleged attack had left police patrol and combat engineers. The scene, cordoned off, but the alarm proved false. As it turned out, a "bomb" was a mobile phone. The truth is not simple, and connected to the service of one of the cellular operators to track the movements of the subscriber.

Nemtsov has admitted that he was surprised the incident. According to him, the phone hung the vehicle not less than two weeks. "Charging for these phones for long rests, at least a week, and he was discharged," - said he was publishing. In addition, the policies do not really understand why you should start the car, not him personally.

In addition, Nemtsov questions to the driver who negligently treated their duties and have not followed the standing machine, including its cleanliness and general condition.

As it became known, politician intends to apply to the appropriate authorities to provide him with protection. And since this is not the first attack on the opposition, it is likely to law enforcement agencies (or intelligence) will meet the scandalous policy. At least in the run-up to the Moscow City Duma elections authorities are not interested in neither the present nor in the fictitious terrorist attacks.

It is noteworthy that the issue of providing protection to opposition leaders seriously discussed at the summit in 2006. "The idea for the Protection of the opposition seems to me correct," - then said in an interview with National Journal, "political analyst Sergei Markov . Moreover, he said, "Should not the means to hire private security, and the allocation of state." "Our goal - to better protect citizens' right to criticize the authorities. And this should be reflected in the law on the opposition, which, along with the expansion of rights in the parliament, media access and other resources, must regulate and physical protection of prominent opposition leaders. Certainly, the authorities should be held accountable for the lives and safety of these people. Also, the necessary safeguards, including physical security, and business, which finances the opposition, "- said the analyst. Sergei Markov, also stressed that "the protection of prominent opposition figures - it's a penny on a national scale," and "funds for such activities is in the budget of the FSB, and this money is enough."

Incidentally, the FSB had once saved the life of Russian politics.

In September 2001, Boris Nemtsov, a member of the delegation members and journalists flew to Chechnya to visit the school in the Achkhoi-Martan. The plane landed in Nazran, where guests from Moscow in minibuses moved towards the Achkhoi-Martan. We arrived without incident, however, as it turned out later, miraculously escaped death.Immediately prior to visiting guests in the capital of Chechnya, the FSB received information that the stretch of road between Bamut and Achkhoi-Martan mined. Arrived at the scouts have really found a road surface three remote controlled bombs, which were installed from large shells. Bombs defused immediately, pre-pulled them away from the road. And the force of the explosion was such that if the IED triggered by minibus, then from the vehicles would have remained one wheel.

In the apparatus of Boris Nemtsov, learning about the failed assassination attempt on politics, genuinely surprised. ATP staff were convinced that the Chechen separatists have no reason to wish harm to Mr. Nemtsov. "Nemtsov suggested his own plan to resolve the situation in the country - has told the correspondent of Kommersant Assistant Nemtsov Lily Oak .- In his book, the Chechens from each teip should choose reputable people, and create a structure like a parliament. [...] And, as said Our leader, the Chechen delegation could theoretically lead and Aslan Maskhadov, and another leader - if only he was elected and delegated to the people. "

However, the politicians, like businessmen, not friends. Today you drink with this man freshly squeezed orange juice, and tomorrow he is making plans for your removal.
