On March 9, Deputy Minister of Education and Science of the Republic Ramil Khairullin said that educational institutions of Tatarstan have many shortcomings in terms of equipment with anti-terrorist security systems.

According to him, a number of institutions do not have an alarm system or an evacuation warning and management system or autonomous means of emergency notification of employees and students. There are also no outdoor lighting, video surveillance or security alarm systems. In some kindergartens and schools, there are no security posts at the main entrances to buildings, turnstiles, gates at the entrance to the facility. One of the main reasons is the lack of funding, Khayrullin stressed.
