Greater protection for Russian military judges -- but why and from whom?

The Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) reports that the
Russian government has submitted a bill to the lower house of parliament that would authorize military police to ensure security of military judges and members of their families, according to the State Duma database. 
Currently, measures to ensure the safety of military courts’ judges, judges of judicial panels for military personnel, members of their families as well as measures to ensure the safekeeping of their property are carried out by internal affairs agencies and commanders of military units. 
Under the bill, Russia’s Military Police officers will discharge these duties on equal terms with the aforementioned bodies.
The article does not explain why this bill has been introduced.
