One More Special Service Created in Russia

It is actually very important to make activity of the frothier service adequate to development of the international relations
According to the FSB First Deputy Director Vladimir Pronichev, the frontier service will transform from an army organization into a special service. In accordance with the presidential decree, the RF Frontier Service is abolished starting with July 1. On the basis of the organization a frontier service was created in the FSB; it will be headed by Vladimir Pronichev.

In an interview with the Rossiiskaya Gazeta newspaper Vladimir Pronichev said that experience of Russian and foreign frontier services is being considered now with a view to develop effective and civilized methods for protection of Russia's interests at the border. He added that thus the frontier service would transform from an army organization into a special service.

For this purpose a system of frontier departments is to be formed at the FSB; they will be in command of the frontier troops as well.

As the new structure develops, the FSB first deputy director says, it will switch to a completely professional basis which in its turn will reduce the conscription to the frontier services. According to Pronichev, it is actually very important to make activity of the frothier service adequate to development of the international relations, so that it might strengthen mutual cooperation. He says: "Frontiers must join not separate people."

The reorganization of the frontier service is aimed at simplification of the management system, at reduction of the numerous managerial staff and at creation of a more effective working system, Vladimir Pronichev says. He adds that nothing will change at the RF border so far; the above mentioned changes will concern only the central apparatus of the service. The next stage of the reorganization will include creation of effective regional departments. Vladimir Pronichev says that the Caucasus area will be of top priority for the service. The newly formed structure plans to cooperate with other departments with a view to avert all possible threats to the Russian population that may come from across the border. Particular attention of the service will be also focused on protection of the RF borders with Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

In addition to the above mentioned, the newly formed service will develop measures for protection of the sea biological resources. As the number of problems connected with the sector is considerable, the service will consider it one of the top priorities.
