Russian railways tighten security ahead of Sochi Games
As part of an effort to ensure transportation security ahead of the Sochi Olympics next year, Russian Railways on Monday introduced additional security checks at entrances to 32 major train stations across Russia.
The affected stations include those that serve high-speed Sapsan and Allegro trains between Nizhny Novgorod, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Vyborg, as well as major stations in the southern Russian cities Sochi, Adler, Krasnodar and Makhachkala. A handful of stations in the Far East and Volga River regions will also be affected.
The new security system will operate in a trial mode for now and only a "select number of passengers" will have their luggage checked, the Transportation Ministry said in a statement.
