    The same guys who made people disappear or thrown out windows. This national guard is here to prevent the Maiden movement (foreign entity) from taking control of its country and turning it into Ukraine now.

    I know. Still it'd be good to see what they got as opposing force.
    Ukr NG is purely a regime-protection organization established post-Maidan and carry out the first dirty jobs.

    Officially they have 52,000 troops divided into 5 regional commands. How many units are actually under government control is another topic?

    Just as a FYI the VV is supposed to still have 30,000 conscripts, but all other service people in the National Guard would be volunteers.

    Volunteers or Contract? The numbering of the people is what I got from various other sources, including Sputnik and Saker. I didn't go into detail if they were conscript or volunteers/contractors, but purely what the current numbers are and what may be in the future.

    Conscription is probably on its way out.

    I use the term volunteer to cover Officers, Warrant Officers, contractors, cadets, etc.
    Not sure how long conscription continues. I know the VV have had a recruitment target goal of 80,000 contractors, which they apparently reached last year.

    Coast Guard looks after the Coast and Border. National Guard will be the water around nuclear power plants, closed cities and the Amur river north of Khabarovsk and the Police would be harbor/port areas.

    Interior Ministry has clarified the meaning of large-scale redundancies

    According to the document, the number of staff is set "in the amount of 904 871 units" (previously 1,067,876 units).
    The same decree reduced the central office of the Interior Ministry - with 7475 up to 6714 units.

    So, in Rogvardii structure includes departments for supervision in the sphere of trafficking in weapons and private security, as well as private security, rapid reaction force and aviation units and special forces of the FSUE "Security.

    Some clarification on the number and units going to the National Guard. Total will be ~340,000 which once the Troops of the Interior (VV) are transferred in (170,000 servicemen plus 8-9,000 civilians) looks correct. On the other hand, the first 163,000 includes the OMON and SOBR plus apparently only about half the Private Security people. The Private Security force numbers ~238,000 servicemen plus up to 100,000 civilians. The 238,000 breaks down into 120,000 Security Patrol and 110,000 Security Guards plus 8,000 in Chechnya (5,000 Special Police and 3,000 Oil Guards - Kadyrov's Army). It would appear that only one of the two groups (Patrol or Guards) joins the National Guard. My guess would be the Guards. It has been rumored from the start that one of the goals of the new National Guards was getting Kadyrov's men under Federal Government control.

    EDIT: don't see SOBR (Police SWAT) mentioned in previous post. Perhaps they stay with the Police.
