“There is such a thing for the military forces as a place of permanent deployment. Today, this place was given to the Surgut special division of OMON, ” Ural District commander of the military forces of the National Guard of the Russian Federation Lieutenant-General Igor Golloev said. – The combat route of the command of the Yugorsk Rosgvardia began in 1993. For 23 years of its history, the squadron conducted more than 1,500 special operations both in the region and outside. 36 military missions to the North Caucasus, 210 soldiers of the detachment were awarded state awards, 52 chevaliers of the Order of Courage, of which nine were awarded the Order twice. Every day Rosgvardia faces new tasks to ensure public security, suppression of extremism and terrorism in the whole territory of the Russian Federation, the Urals Federal District, and in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. It is also significant that this event takes place on the eve of the Day of the Military Forces of the National Guard of the Russian Federation. ”
In 2013 the public of Surgut appealed to the Governor of Ugra Natalia Komarova with the initiative to create a special police unit, which the Head of the region had supported.
“I congratulate the Ugra guardsmen on getting a new home,” Natalia Komarova greeted those present. — Residents of Surgut formed the request for the formation of the OMON unit. Minister of the Interior, with our support, decided to create such a unit. By the way, it was in 2013, the 20th anniversary of the OMON in the Okrug. By the next anniversary, in 2018, the Ugra guardsmen can rely on three powerful bases – in Khanty-Mansiysk, Nizhnevartovsk and Surgut. Every resident of Ugra, and there are 1.6 million of us, prays for you, your successes and health. ”
“I am glad that you, dear fighters, have received a worthy place where you can prepare for carrying out your combat service,” the head of Surgut Vadim Shuvalov said.
Personnel of the mobile special task unit of the Office of the Russian Guard for Ugra was awarded a memorable address for high achievements in operational and service activities.
Having passed through the base and inspected the building inside, Igor Golloev summarized: “I want to say that this is an excellent base. Despite the fact that this is the first stage. Very good quality, convenient logistics. The room is good and comfortable to use. This is one of the most advanced bases in Russia today. ”
“The first stage of the project, indeed, can be considered successful , – the Head of the region Natalia Komarova said. If we talk about the interests of Ugra people , including the residents of Surgut, the availability of such units raises the level of people’s safety. A few years ago it was possible to think that this is unnecessary, that we militarize in vain, but it turned out that we were right. The world has changed a lot. We must be able to professionally protect our lives and the lives of fellow countrymen. ”
The total area of the territory is about five hectares. The facility is equipped with advanced equipment, at the disposal of OMON fighters there is already an administrative building and a checkpoint. The second stage involves the arrangement of garage boxes, these works are planned to be completed before the end of 2017. And, finally, the third stage involves the construction of a shooting range and a heliport deck. In short, the training complex will be a good platform for professional and physical training of security task forces.
