Recall that organized the Central Cossack army of private security organization “Cossack guards” without bidding received a contract to patrol the Moscow courts. The rationale for the lack of trades was were the circumstances “of the accident, other emergency situations of natural or man-made disasters, irresistible force” referred to on the website of public procurement office of the judicial Department in Moscow.

In the end, FAS has agreed with the complaint to the FCO, which remarked that “no fires, no tsunamis in Moscow at that time was not observed,” and imposed on officials of the judicial Department a fine of 50 thousand rubles.

Sable adds that the regulation of FAS contains “a very interesting remark”: it turned out that after the hype in the press, raised in the winter around the guard Cossacks of the courts, the government, on behalf of the Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin instructed to prepare a proposal to bring the Cossacks to the protection of the courts.
