UFA, November 17. /TASS/. Russia’s Rostekhnadzor supervisory agency on ecological, technological and nuclear issues has stepped up measures to protect critical facilities against potential terrorist attacks, the head of the agency told reporters on Tuesday.
"Protection against terrorism is one of the issues that Rostekhnadzor deals with," Alexey Alyoshin said. "Of course, we have focused more attention in this respect at all most hazardous facilities," he said.
Alyoshin takes part in a seminar of the Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Supervision on supervisory activity in the oil and gas sector. The seminar is under way in Ufa, the capital of Russia’s republic of Bashkortostan in the southern part of the Ural Mountains.
Assessing the situation at sector’s facilities, he noted a tendency towards a decline in the number of incidents. "Assessing it on the whole, we have a stably positive tendency," the Rostekhnadzor chief said.
Five incidents were fixed in the republic of Bashkortostan last year, all of them hitting facilities of the oil and gas sector. Two incidents have occurred this year. The republic is the leader in industrial safety level among other Russian regions, where the situation is "somewhat worse," Alyoshin said.
