SOCHI, October 8 (Itar-Tass) - As the opening of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi draws near, the Russian security services have set the task of maintaining and strengthening security at the event most effectively while creating the most comfortable conditions for participants and guests, Aleksandr Bortnikov, the chief of the Federal Security Service (FSB), head of the National Anti-Terrorist Committee said on Tuesday.
“It is essential to take into account any changes in the operational environment and to respond immediately to any kind of tips and warnings,” Bortnikov said. Fifteen different training sessions for security personnel have been held since 2012, including seven in the Greater Sochi region. The exercises put to test the security agencies' readiness to respond to different emergencies.
“The NAC and the interdepartmental coordinating centre will hold a strategic exercise Olympics-2014 at 270 Olympic sites in November. We will practise cooperation by anti-terrorist agencies and, if necessary, to adjust the alignment of forces,” Bortnikov said.
