Five years since the attacks in Volgograd, on anti-terrorism logistics

44
Five years have passed since the events in Volgograd, literally shook the country. The 29 and 30 blasts of December 2013 - at the railway station and in one of the trolleybuses - killed 34 human lives in total, about 60 people were injured. At the entrance to the station building there are flowers and lamps in memory of people killed at the hands of terrorists. The plaque recalls what happened five years ago.


Five years since the attacks in Volgograd, on anti-terrorism logistics


After lengthy investigative actions, it was established that the terrorist acts were committed by Asker Samedov (he blew himself up at the inspection zone of December 29 railway station) and Suleiman Magomedov, who acted as an observer during the terrorist attack that day, and the next day blew himself up in public transport. It is worth recalling that initially there were reports that an explosive device in the Volgograd trolleybus in the Dzerzhinsky district was triggered by a female suicide bomber. However, later this information was not confirmed.

That terrible tragedy that shook Russia once again made it necessary to improve security measures at transport facilities in the country. What measures were taken as a result both in Volgograd and in other cities of Russia - at railway stations and other objects with a massive presence of people?

Railway stations in many major transport hubs received updated anti-terrorism logistics. The entrance is carried out through specialized checkpoints, which, for obvious reasons, are taken from the station buildings to the station territory. Hand luggage is examined when passing through the transport belt, passengers are checked through the frames of metal detectors. In Volgograd, which survived a terrible tragedy five years ago, the checks are especially thorough. Additional inspection using hand-held metal detectors is carried out by the station staff, while the police are working. In the city, Cossack patrols operate at significant sites and public events. At the same time, the entrance to the station building through the central cluster is closed, and I would like to hope that it is really effective from being closed from unauthorized entry. There barrage barriers working on the "opening in the opposite direction," the employee is on duty at the barriers.



Whether these barriers on 100% will be able to prevent unauthorized entry into the station building is a question that, again, I hope, the security services have the answer.

By the way, going back to the topic of anti-terrorism logistics ... by no means all of the major railway stations in the country carried passenger points outside the main buildings. There are many examples of when checking is carried out directly in a building. One of them is the Kursk railway station in Moscow. Paveletsky including.

At the same time, it should be noted that the removal of inspection points outside the station buildings is understandable, but it hardly guarantees a significant increase in security. In Volgograd, at the checkpoint, queues are often formed, in total, in which simultaneously (on several "lines" of inspection) there can be 30-40 people.

Therefore, the main point is still that the work should be carried out in advance. It sounds trite, but it doesn’t cancel actuality, because, in fact, it’s bitter to realize that we all have to learn from bloody experience.

    Everything is correctly said (preemption is, first of all, intelligence-operational work). Russia in the fight against this threat has good results.

    Will these barriers 100% prevent unauthorized entry into the station building - the question

    No ... they cannot.
    This is just one of the filters scattered across Russia ... maybe by chance some of the terrorists will fall into it.
    And so the main work to identify terrorists should be carried out in other places where conditions are created for its appearance.
    The case with Roslyakov clearly showed this.
    There is a law banning the illegal production and use of explosives ... as we see, Roslyakova he did not stop ... then the effectiveness of this law is in question ... the same thing with the ban on illegal possession of weapons.
    Further ... how can one identify a person prone to the manifestation of a single terror not associated with organized terror?
    How to identify a sleeping terrorist?
    How to identify signs of an impending terrorist attack by radical groups?
    A lot of questions ... It’s time to turn to psychics ... an equation with a large number of unknowns in the formula of terror.

    Railway stations in many major transport hubs received updated anti-terrorism logistics. Entrance is through specialized inspection points, which, for obvious reasons, are removed from the station buildings to the forecourt. Hand luggage is examined during the passage along the conveyor belt, passengers are checked through the framework of metal detectors.

    What's the beautiful! Just beautiful! Real civilization. Not like in the deeply wretched Soviet Union.

    I remember that from 1979 to 1984 I had to travel very often by train. Well, how often? From 52 weeks, i.e. weekends, about 30, if not more. Roundtrip. Those. station, train, station and a day later again station, train, station. And so 30 times a year, i.e. 60 trains and 120 stations, at least. It is impossible to calculate exactly how much over these years. So, during all this time, not once, not a single cop asked for documents, and in order to inspect the luggage, one would not dream in a dream. I never took my passport with me, otherwise it will be lost again. We then simply did not dare to dream how everything would become amazing after the "commies" and "scoops" were done away with.

    In short, the boredom was on transport in the Union. Now, how wonderful it has become - they’ll enlighten us with an X-ray, their pockets will be turned out, they will study the passport. The beauty!

    PS. It was almost like in a song: It’s not the rooster that wakes up in the morning, crowing, the sergeant will raise him like a man.

        At the Stolypin dacha after the explosion ... by the way more than 100 people were injured, of which 27 people died on the spot, and 33 were seriously injured and many subsequently died.

          "A time bomb under the building of our statehood"
          The President also explained why he called Vladimir Lenin the man who planted the atomic bomb at the foundation of the country. Putin recalled that Lenin had a discussion with Stalin about building a new state. Stalin's ideas were rejected, and the country was built with the possibility of its members leaving the state. "This (the right to leave the country) is a time bomb under the building of our statehood," he stressed. "This also led to the disintegration of the state," he added.

            The Republic of Belarus, the Russian Federation (RSFSR) and Ukraine as the founding states of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, which signed the 1922 Treaty of the Year, stated that "the Soviet Union as a subject of international law and geopolitical reality ceases to exist."

        First, the formation of the USSR took place in 1922. By that time, the independent republics of Ukraine, Belarus and Transcaucasia already existed. No, of course, there was an option to fill everything with blood there and drive "where it grew" with bayonets. But the people's power is the people's power, so that the people's blood does not shed in vain.

        Secondly, the question of the right to secede from the USSR is well explained by Stalin:

        “Next comes the amendment to the 17th article of the draft Constitution. The amendment is that they propose to exclude the 17th article altogether from the draft Constitution, which speaks of maintaining the right of free exit from the USSR for the Union Republics. I think that this proposal is wrong and therefore should not be accepted by the Congress. The USSR is a voluntary union of equal Union Republics.

        To exclude from the Constitution an article on the right of free exit from the USSR - means breaking the voluntary nature of this union. Can we take this step? I think that we cannot and should not take this step. They say that in the USSR there is not a single republic that would like to secede from the USSR, and therefore, Article 17 does not have practical significance. That we do not have a single republic that would like to secede from the USSR, this, of course, is true. But this does not at all follow that we should not fix in the Constitution the right of the Union republics to free exit from the USSR.

        There is also no Union Republic in the USSR that would like to crush another Union Republic. But this does not at all follow that an article treating on the equality of rights of the Union republics should be excluded from the Constitution of the USSR. ”

            It may seem strange to some, but the USSR was not a country with cannibalistic inclinations. And the voluntariness of being a member of the Union is a confirmation of this.

          These three republics were pseudo-independent republics. Their communist parties were integral parts of the RCP (b), the orders of the SNK and the People's Commissariats of the RSFSR were binding on them within the framework of the military-political union. It would be better indeed to have become part of the RSFSR in accordance with the Stalinist plan of autonomy.
