russian “Gazprom” Creates Its Own Private Military Company

The energy monopolist “Gazprom Nafta” is creating its own private military company. mikhail mishustin, prime minister of the russian federation, has signed the appropriate order. 

As the document states, “Gazprom Nafta” (70% of the statutory capital) and “STAFF-Centre Private Security Organisation” (30% of the statutory capital) will be considered as the founders of the organisation.

The government of the russian federation refers to the law “On the Security of Fuel and Energy Facilities”, which states that companies of this industry “may be granted the right to establish a private security organisation”. The share of such a company in the statutory capital of the newly created “organisation” cannot be less than 50%.

Thus, the “arms race” continues in russia among the main political players who are actively creating private armies following the example of yevhen prigozhin’s “Wagner Group”.


  1. All the mafia men are gathering their private armies. Might be worth buying some popcorn, this could get interesting.

    • Yeah, I doubt this will be sustainable in Moskovia. Plus it appears the government is so broke they have to hire criminals from the private sector to protect their own interests. Hopefully those interests won’t be in Ukraine but in Moscow.
