No military police will be established in the Russian Army to replace military commandants
No military police will be established in the Russian Army to replace military commandants, a first deputy defense minister said Thursday. Talks about the possible introduction of a special military police force emerged following reports about a string of hazing attacks in the Russian Army that caused a public outcry. "We have decided to improve the current practice by modernizing the work of military commandant's offices," Gen. Alexander Belousov said. Belousov said modernization would concern discipline in garrisons, patrols, service in military detention facilities, military traffic police, search for deserters, and preliminary investigations. The highest profile of the recent hazing incidents involved private Andrei Sychev, who had to have both of his legs amputated after allegedly being beaten and tortured over the New Year's Eve holidays in his army unit in the south Urals city of Chelyabinsk. Belousov said military commandant's offices would be reinforced and have new subdivisions, including for guarding arrested servicemen. "Commandant's offices will be formed through cooperation between agencies and by involving other structures, such as the Interior Ministry and the Federal Security Service," Belousov said.
