In the Kursk region, from February 4, the high level of terrorist threat will be extended indefinitely. This was announced on February 3 by the governor of the region Roman Starovoit in his Telegram channel.
“In the Kursk region, we are extending the “yellow” level of terrorist danger from February 4 and for the entire period until enhanced measures are needed to protect and protect our territory,” he wrote.
The governor will announce all changes separately.
On February 1, Russian President Vladimir Putin called the priority task of the Ministry of Defense to prevent the shelling of the Russian border regions by the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU). The head of state noted that many people lost their homes, and also faced interruptions in the supply of water, heat and electricity.
The day before, Putin had amended the decree on the procedure for establishing terrorist threat levels. So, according to the new rules, in the regions of Russia where the “yellow” level of the threat of terrorist attacks is set, they will introduce inspection of cars to detect weapons and explosive devices.
On January 30, the governor of the Kursk region announced that additional forces and means would arrive in the region to protect the state border and ensure security. He also urged the military to provide comprehensive support so that they can start performing their tasks as quickly as possible.
Since October 19, a medium level of response has been introduced in a number of regions of Russia: in the Republic of Crimea, Voronezh, Kursk, Belgorod, Bryansk, Rostov regions and the Krasnodar Territory. This is due to the conduct of a special military operation (SVO) to protect the population of Donbass.
The special operation to protect Donbass, the beginning of which the President of Russia announced on February 24, continues. The decision was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.
