Gazprom's Private Army

Probably pays better than the Russian army

Gazprom, the Russian gas monopoly, will likely be granted permission by the Russian Federation to create a private army to protect its business interests. Estonia says it is determined to observe carefully how the Russian-German gas pipeline develops vis-à-vis the Baltic Sea region. The Estonian Ministry of Defense said that no combatant of any private army will be allowed into Estonian territory.
