As part of a deal signed last week in Washington DC between the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and FEMA, Russian officials will provide gsecurity at mass eventsh in the United States, a scenario that wonft sit well with Americans wary of foreign assets operating on US soil.

According to a press release by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense and Emergencies, US and Russian officials met on June 25 at the 17th Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations.
In addition to agreeing with FEMA to gexchange experts during joint rescue operations in major disasters,h the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry will also be providing gsecurity at mass eventsh in the United States.
This suggests that events designated as gNational Special Security Eventsh by the Department of Homeland Security, which include the Super Bowl, international summits such as the G8 and presidential inaugurations, will now rely partly on Russian authorities to provide security.
The meeting last week also agreed on the conclusion that US and Russian emergency authorities will increase their co-operation, gin order to respond efficiently to all kinds of disasters.h
The use of foreign troops or other officials in a law enforcement capacity providing gsecurityh inside the United States is illegal under Posse Comitatus. Capt. William Geddes of the U.S. Army Reserve acknowledged last year that it is against federal law to use US troops to conduct police patrols, despite the fact that such occurrences are becoming increasingly common. The use of foreign troops is an even more clear cut violation of Posse Comitatus.
Last year we reported on how Russian troops were invited to the US as part of a Fort Carson, Colorado drill focused around anti-terror training. Aside from learning how to target terrorists in America, the Russian soldiers were also out in the local community attending a baseball game in Colorado Springs.
As Mac Slavo writes, gRumors have circulated for years about the possibility of foreign troops being deployed on U.S. soil in the event of a widespread declaration of a national emergency. For quite some time there have been anecdotal reports to support the claim that the U.N., Russia and other nations would be used in a policing capacity should some critical event befall our nation.h
gThe fear should such a scenario take place has been that these soldiers would act under the banner of their own flags, ignoring the fundamental protections afforded to our citizens, leaving Americans under the jurisdiction of people who donft speak our language or respect our fundamental rights to self defense, to be secure in our homes, and to be presumed innocent in the eyes of the law.h
Concerns about foreign troops being used on US soil have lingered ever since the release of State Department Publication 7277, which is a blueprint for the harmonization of US and Russian forces under a framework of United Nations-led global government.
Back in 2008 it was also reported that US and Canadian authorities had signed an agreement that would pave the way to using each otherfs militaries on both sides of the border gduring an emergencyh.
Alex Jones has documented foreign troops being trained on U.S. soil to deal with ginsurgentsh since the late 1990s as part of gurban warfare drillsh.
Back in July 2010, our reporters covered the Operation Vigilant Guard exercises in Chicago which involved Polish troops training alongside U.S. National Guard troops in drills focused around raiding terrorists and drug dealers.
According to SFC Mark Ballard of the Illinois National Guard, the Polish forces were gintegrating into some of the civil military units that are participating in this exerciseh as part of Illinoisf partnership with the Republic of Poland, a relationship based around gintegrative trainingh and blending military and civilian forces in the event of a national emergency, as well as making this process of integration with foreign troops more gvisibleh.
