“Rossotrudnichestvo is forced to respond to the deteriorating situation, as our offices are operating more and more in hostile countries, while hysterical accusations against us will continue – he announced on Telegram – in fact, we have nothing to lose, therefore, realizing that we must somehow ensure safety Russian houses and the rights of our citizens, since there are no other means, we decided to register our private security company in one of the foreign jurisdictions.
According to Primakov, “the presence of well-armed, strong and enthusiastic people” in the offices would make the work done by the agency on a human and cultural level “more visible”.
Then the director of Rossotrudnichestvo, which was founded by then President Dmitry Medvedev in 2008, mentioned the two names being considered for the company: Pushkinesti, which means follower of the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin, or Whiskers, again as a reference to Pushkin, because the poet had sideburns.
