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.
