SIMFEROPOL, October 31 /TASS/. Sergey Aksyonov, the head of Crimea, told a meeting of the anti-terrorism commission on Monday that it was necessary to make chemical plants in the peninsula’s north more protected against terrorist risks and reduce the probability of terror attacks to the minimum, the regional government said.
"In view of the vicinity of Ukraine’s border, I assume that it is necessary to reduce to the minimum the probability of carrying out terror attacks at these facilities," the Crimean government’s press service quoted Aksyonov as saying.
On the whole, Aksyonov said, the previously adopted decisions aimed at ensuring anti-terrorism security measures at Crimean chemical plants had been implemented.
Two Crimean chemical giants - "Krymsky Titan" (Crimean Titanium, a major Russian producer of dioxide titanium) and AO "Brom" joint-stock company (specializes in the production of bromine and bromides) - are located near the border with Ukraine.
On August 10, 2016, the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) reported the arrest of a group of saboteurs in Crimea’s territory and the prevention of a series of terror attacks on the peninsula that had been prepared by the intelligence service of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry. The FSB has no doubt that vitally important elements of Crimean infrastructure and life-sustaining facilities on the peninsula were the targets of the terror attacks. Andrei Zakhtey and Yevgeny Panov were detained in Crimea on charges of preparing subversive acts and terror attacks. Both men gave confessionary evidence and were arrested.
