MOSCOW, September 3 /TASS/. Russian border guards will check whether railway checkpoints on the border with Ukraine are duly equipped to prevent the transportation of drugs and weapons, Natalya Lyubimova, a spokesman for the Russian Federal Agency for Development of State Border Facilities, said on Thursday.
The monitoring measures were a subject of an inter-agency meeting with representatives of state control bodies and the North Caucasus Railway that was chaired by Vladimir Shmatko, the deputy director of agency's southern territorial department responsible for five railway checkpoints on the Russia-Ukraine border.
The measures, according to Lyubimova, are designed to reveal problems and outline steps for optimization and development of railway checkpoints.
