For a long time, there was no clear distinction as to who protects which facilities in the fuel and energy sector. There used to be a wording in the law according to the category, according to the facility passport, but at the moment the law has clearly regulated this situation. Previously a wide range of people could have been allowed to guard facilities and the changes were aimed at enhancing security and safety. Now the question is strictly resolved based on the category – the higher the category, the more professional and the narrower the squad has the right to protect the site. The higher category of facilities can be guarded by the National Guard or departmental security [organizations, – Ed.] — Anastasiya Bondarenko, State Secretary, Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation.
