MOSCOW, August 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s military will test new approaches to organisation of eliminating consequences of emergency situations, which involve nuclear weapons, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Monday.
“An active phase of the Accident-2013 tactics-special complex drill began today,” he said. “The exercises are aimed at testing new approaches to organisation of overcoming consequences of emergency situations involving nuclear weapons.”
“Obtaining weapon of the kind makes us responsible for its safety, which requires organised action, force and means from the Defence Ministry, and from divisions of state-run Rosatom, from Russian Railroads and other authorities,” the defence minister said. “We should be always ready to respond to possible emergency situations with nuclear weapons.”
After the report by commander of the exercises Colonel General Alexander Postnikov, the minister stressed the importance of following strictly all safety requirements during the exercises and after them.
