Tightened security measures already operating at Boryspil Airport

Security measures have been heighted in Ukraine because of the conduct of anti-terrorist operation, and they have been additionally tightened at Boryspil Airport recently.

Artem Shevchenko, an Interior Ministry’s representative, told Ukrinform.

“In the country that is at war and is in the regime of anti-terrorist operation, security measures have been increased on the whole, and at Boryspil Airport they have been significantly toughened,” he said.

Shevchenko specified that the National Police, the National Guard, the State Service on Emergency Situations are operating in the regime of anti-terrorist operation and “are doing everything possible to provide security everywhere, in particular at airports”.

When asked whether additional security measures would be introduced after terrorist attacks in Brussels, Shevchenko noted that “as a rule, after such events we step up some measures in certain places”.
