KRASNOGORSK (Moscow region), January 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov says his units are set to ensure protection of guests and participants at the Sochi Olympics, assessing the level of security as high.
Security measures reflected those in place for last summer's Universiade international sporting event in Kazan, Tatarstan, Puchkov said.
“All issues of safety, from natural and man-made disasters and fires as well as security for Olympics guests, have been settled at a world level,” the minister said.
These included new fire stations and an emergency situation control centre alongside a centre for mounted police and dog handlers.
