    Russian Prime Minister and president-elect Vladimir Putin on Wednesday supported the idea of private defense companies that would provide protection services and military training programs abroad without the participation of the Russian state.

    The idea was proposed by A Just Russia deputy Alexei Mitrofanov during Putin’s report to the lower house of parliament, the State Duma.

    Putin said that was “an instrument in the pursuit of national interests without the direct participation of the state.”

    “I believe that it should be considered, thought over,” he said.
