MOSCOW, November 16. /TASS/. Russia’s federal protective service FSO will conduct a large-scale exercise inside the Kremlin and around the area on November 17. Some temporary restrictions on traffic in the center of Moscow will be introduced.
"The exercise will practice a large variety of activities, such as countermeasures against attempts at illegal penetration into guarded facilities and other illegal actions; disruption of extremist activities; measures against unauthorized flights by drones over sensitive facilities; detection and elimination of equipment and gear meant for acts of terrorism and sabotage; and fire safety precautions."
"Also, certain measures of ensuring the safety of motor vehicles on the route will be practiced," the report says.
The FSO said that the Moscow Kremlin and the surrounding territory on Thursday will see another phase of a routine special tactical exercise by FSO units, also involving police, the Russian Guard and Emergencies Ministry forces.
"The exercise will take place on a large territory of Moscow’s Kremlin. Some activities will be held in Red Square, the Alexander Garden, Borovitskaya Square and Manezh Street," the FSO said.
