Mikhail Fradkov believes that transport is the most vulnerable sphere as far as the terrorist attacks are concerned
Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov believes that transport is the most vulnerable sphere as far as the terrorist attacks are concerned. He said this at the enlarged session of the transport ministry's board. A comprehensive approach is needed to solve this problem: special technical equipment, creation of the legal field where responsibility of all the participants in the transport process will be determined. The prime minister also pointed out that a new system of interaction with law-enforcement bodies is necessary. At the collegium's session Mr. Fradkov raised the question of the road safety. "Regrettably, statistics continues to register the growth of the number of those who died on the country's roads," the prime minister pointed out and stressed that "the problem acquires the nature of the national catastrophe." Transport Minister Igor Levitin came out at the session for the stronger state regulation in the sphere of transportation safety. According to him, two aircraft crashes on August 24 showed weak points of the existing system of ensuring the security of passengers and the sector's employees. The exaggerated role of state control in the past gave way to nihilistic approach during the period of economic reforms. The overestimation of market mechanisms in this important sphere as security led to weakening the regulatory influence of state and the development of crises," Mr. Levitin pointed out. The transport ministry is going to work out the draft concept of transport safety and corresponding changes in the federal targeted program by November, he reported. Before the year is out the transport ministry plans to complete the work on the draft law "On Transport Safety" as well as take part in elaborating the draft laws "On Combating Terrorism," "On Security," and others.
