MOSCOW, October 19. /TASS/. The Moscow authorities will take measures to bolster the security of civilian and vital facilities, but will not impose restrictions on the capital’s ordinary rhythm of life, Moscow City Mayor Sergey Sobyanin wrote in his blog on Wednesday.
"In pursuance to those decrees, we will take the required measures to reinforce security of civilian facilities and vital infrastructure. I must say, however, that no measures constraining the city’s ordinary tempo of life will be imposed," the mayor wrote.
Sobyanin emphasized that the tasks of economic stability, security precautions, coordination between response forces, civil defense and protection from emergencies along with others "will be handled by the relevant federal and city services, largely on a routine basis."
Earlier on Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin introduced four levels of preparedness as part of his decree, which has already been published. The highest level was declared in the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, and in the Zaporozhye and Kherson Regions. A medium level of preparedness was introduced in the Russian regions bordering Ukraine. A high level of readiness will be in effect in other regions of the Central and Southern Federal Districts, and a level of basic readiness in other Russian regions.
