Beloyarskaya Nuclear Power Station Takes Further Anti-Terror Steps

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, July 13, 2018. The Russian Government issued a special decree to ensure better counter-terrorist security at nuclear facilities by setting up special-legal-status security zones around the national nuclear power stations, including Beloyarskaya Station in Zarechny, the latter’s press service reports.

The zone will be introduced around Beloyarskaya Nuclear Power Station in August 2018. Its special legal status means an entry permit will be needed to enter or stay within the zone, with a full list of eligibility criteria/grounds for rejection. It also means limits will get imposed on any aerial activity within the zone (which applies to aircraft, among other things). Furthermore, limits will be set on economic operations/business activity in the area and on ownership, use, or management of natural resources/real estate, all of which limits have to do with the restricted access to the zone.

Like any other nuclear station, Beloyarskaya ensures safety and physical protection 24/7 through its own security department and Rosguardia’s troops. The new legal status is expected to help make their work even more efficient.
