Russia: Special Regime In All Airports From Now

Posted by Info on 24/01/2011

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has ordered a special regime in all Moscow airports and other transport hubs.
“It is necessary to declare a special regime in all airports and airport connection stations, in all major transport hubs. I order (Transport Minister Igor) Levitin and the Interior Ministry to exercise all necessary procedures in cooperation with the FSB, to perform all necessary actions,” the president said in an address that was broadcast live on Russian television.

Will Geddes, terrorism expert and managing director of International Corporate Protection Group:
“To strike in the airport — which is fundamentally believed and understood by many to be one of the most secure types of installations in a city or in a country — to have such a devastating an attack with such a tragic result, means that they had planned this considerably well and gone ahead in achieving their aims.”
In 2004, two airplanes that took off from Domodedovo exploded, killing at least 89 people.
