The airport’s director said that recently opened new facilities had made it possible to reduce the ratio of people to available space and thus keep better control over the situation.
Mr Medvedev ended his inspection by visiting the airport’s police station.
The President instructed the Interior Ministry to overhaul the way police operates at transport facilities and increase the number of officers there. Implementation of the Presidential instructions on beefing up transport security will be examined at a special meeting in mid-February.
Dmitry Medvedev stressed that regional governors, together with the presidential plenipotentiary envoys to the federal districts, must carry out similar inspections at the main infrastructure facilities in their regions.
During his inspection of the airport President Medvedev was accompanied by Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev, Director of the Federal Security Service Alexander Bortnikov, and Transport Minister Igor Levitin.
