The state Duma is preparing a bill “On private security activities” and “On private detective activity”. They are designed to legalize the status of bodyguards, private security guards and to expand the powers of private detectives.
At the moment, the current Russian law “On private security and detective activity”, adopted in 1992, “is hopelessly outdated, it is recognized by both the government and business”, said the Chairman of the Duma Committee for security and combating corruption Anatoly Election.
“In fact, we legalize the profession of a bodyguard. In Russia exists and operates, the market of personal protection, but outside the legal framework of their rights and responsibilities are not regulated,” said Vyborny.
