Russia to Ensure Security Control in Moscow Metro
The security checks will start operating at 294 entrances to Moscow Metro’s network stations on January 1, 2015. This came in a statement by Network Chief Dmitry Pegov on Friday.
“Luggage screening devices and metal detectors will be installed. We will fully equip all the metro stations before the end of the year. But it would be wrong to take away all personal belongings as it was done to ensure security at the Sochi Winter Olympics,” Mr. Pegov noted.
All the equipment will be bought by the end of the year. 1,000 specialists have been trained so far.
“Radiation detectors would be installed and passengers sent through metal detectors. In the event of any claim on a passenger, an equipped specialist will check the individual for any metal things,” Deputy Security Chief Vladimir Muratov said, adding that radio frequency suppressors would also be installed.
