Tasks of the Russian National Guard?
Well, here's what one of the well-known Wikipedia volunteers writes about this. With the first part, which says that this very guard is called upon to defend state security, that is, the rights of the authorities, I agree.
With the second, which says that its activities are supposedly aimed at defending human rights, no, since in authoritarian state, which is today's Russia, human rights due to this very National Guard, just the same will be suppressed. This is because its main function is to retain power, even if it is really not pleasing to the majority of the people, therefore, as far as the will of the people is concerned, it is always a potential aggressor in their direction.
