Cossack squads will deal with illegal immigrants2012-08-03 19:08
From September 1, the specially created professional Cossack squads, whose responsibility will include resisting the mass displacement of the residents of the North Caucasus to Kuban, start operating in the Krasnodar Krai. Governor of the region Alexander Tkachev spoke in favor of this decision.gt-en-newsitem-inside
As reported at the website of the regional administration, the Cossacks squads will come out on the streets of all the 44 municipalities of the region. They will be subordinate to the headmen, and during the service - to the head of the territorial police department of a district or a city. Cossacks will patrol only under the supervision of an officer of the Federal police.
"We have no other way - we will bring order, check the ID's, we'll be engaged in migration policy", Tkachev said, according to the Yuga.ru.
Meanwhile, in interview to the Russian News Service the headman of the Kuban Cossack war community, Deputy Governor of the Krasnodar Krai Nikolai Doldua stated Tkachev had not asked him to keep track of migrants from the Caucasus. It was about the migrants who work illegally on the territory of the region.
"The Governor has set the task to draw attention to migrants, who appear and work illegally in residential areas of Krasnodar region, to pay attention to them, because they bring a serious problem not only for our region, but also for the whole country", he said.
Now the Cossack squads number more than 1500 people. They are being selected according to the same criteria, as the selection of police officers during the re-certification. For the service the Cossacks will receive a salary commensurate with the salary of the patrol post service.
