MOSCOW, January 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Strategic Missile Troops plan to increase rates of re-equipping its facilities with new security and defence systems two-fold as a minimum as of 2012, a spokesman for the Troops, Colonel Vadim Koval, told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“Under the conditions of existing terrorist threats one of the main tasks for the Strategic Missile Troops is to thwart nuclear terrorism attempts. As a result one of the main activities for the command of the Strategic Missile Troops is to upgrade security and defense capacities of strategic facilities and increase their anti-terrorism resistance,” he said.
“Targeted efforts to develop modern automated security systems and equip facilities of the Strategic Missile Troops with them have been taken since 2005. Beginning from 2012 the rates of re-equipping facilities of the Strategic Missile Troops with new security and defense systems will increase no less than two-fold,” Koval said.
Moreover, the Strategic Missile Troops regularly maintain and revamp automated security systems developed in 1960s-1980s. Ageing equipment has been replaced with new systems at 85 percent of such facilities.
