Presidential Security Service - Russia

Post by Ted-Pencry on 11/11/2015, 11:23

The Presidential Security Service (SBP) (Russian: Служба безопасности президента России) is a federal government agency concerned with the tasks related to the protection of the President of Russia. 

It traces its origin to the USSR's Ninth Chief Directorate of the KGB and the beginning it was led by KGB general Alexander Korzhakov.

From 2000 to 2013, the agency was headed by General Viktor Zolotov. SBP has roughly 2,000 - 3,000 non-uniformed personnel.

The Russian Presidential Security Service, although not listed as one of the structural units on the Russian Federal Protective Service's official website is a secret protective service of the FSO, who is responsible directly to the President's bodyguard services.

The SBP under Putin's first and second terms (2000–2008) was alleged to be effectively supervised by Viktor Zolotov, head of the president's personal security service.

Psychological Security Dept.

The Psychological Security Department is the Intelligence branch of SBP who is responsible for analyzing information collected about the security threats to the life of the president. The Department mixes several selected intelligence experts from the Military Intelligence, Federal Internal Security and the Foreign Intelligence into one branch.
