From your link

''In a conference call with reporters, Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the National Guards could also be involved in disbanding unsanctioned rallies. He said the move had no relation to September's parliamentary elections.''

Paranoia  ?

Seriously, I think 'getting back Crimea' means Putin could do just about ANYTHING and be 'forgiven'

Providing this article is somewhat accurate, Putin's personal army will have substantial  internal power.
If Obama tried this in the United states there would be a revolution.
Too much power placed in the hands of one man.

For a more accurate description CLICK HERE!

It is probably worth noting, in among all the hoohaa from folks who are paid to stir up a fuss and those who unthinkingly follow such stirring up that the National Guard's existence was planned from 2012. This is no surprise, no bomb-shell. The relationship between the National Guard and the president would seem to be pretty much equivalent to the president of, for example, the United States as Commander in Chief of the armed forces with subordinate commanders. The subordinate commander in this case is a bloke called Viktor Zolotov. The curoius might choose to CLICK HERE!
