VLADIVOSTOK, March 9. /TASS/. Russia’s National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) has launched drills in Vladivostok on Wednesday. The exercise involves various services and departments that will drill counter-terrorism security measures at mass gathering facilities, the press service of the Primorsky Territory administration reported on Wednesday. The anti-terror drills will last until March 16.
The exercise headquarters told TASS that part of the drills will take place on the campus of Far Eastern Federal University where about 12,000 students and teachers reside and the same number come there every day to work and study.
"Under the exercise plan, the grouping of forces and equipment of the Primorsky Territory’s law enforcement agencies, regulatory and administrative authorities will be involved in the drills. Temporary legal restrictions in the areas defined by the headquarters are possible," the headquarters said, commenting on the drills’ scenario.
The National Antiterrorism Committee is a collective entity, ensuring coordination of activities of the federal executive power bodies, executive power bodies of the Russian Federation’s constituent entities and local self-government bodies in combating terrorism. It was established in 2006 and comprises representatives of the law enforcement agencies, members of both houses of the Russian parliament and the Russian government.
