It was stated by the director of the Federal National Guard Troops Service — commander-in-chief of the National Guard of the Russian Federation, Army General Viktor Zolotov at the extended sitting of the board of the National Guard of the Russian Federation in Moscow. Its participants summed up the results of activity of Rosgvardiya in 2019 and clarified the tasks for 2020.
In particular, commander-in-chief noted that the troops had fulfilled the tasks set by the state program “Socioeconomic development of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation”, what allowed maintaining the pace of formation and modernization of the non-stationary system for protection of seaports of the Northern Sea Route.
