Putin Signs Law Boosting Anti-Terror Defense of Atomic Facilities
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law that will boost anti-terrorist defense of atomic facilities by creating a special security zone around them.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Access to security areas will be restricted with a list of reasons for access denial to be created.
"In order to boost anti-terrorist defense of atomic facilities… a security zone with special conditions of using [its] territory – a security area with a special legal regime – is established," the law says.
Flights over atomic facilities as well as rights to conduct business; owning and use of natural resources in security zones will also be restricted under the bill.
Scale and borders of a security area will be set in accordance with a safety data sheet of an atomic facility that must contain information about measures necessary for ensuring security of the object.
The law will enter into force on January 1, 2017.
