Security issues continue to mount for the Russian authorities as Sochi’s Winter Olympics’ opening day gets closer. President Putin has promised security for Sochi. The Russian FSB will be busy, as if they are not already in the area.
The truth is, motivated terrorists groups see that sporting events are ways to gain publicity for their causes, even if the publicity is completely negative. This makes the job harder for security management.
For fans and those attending events, the key is to stay vigilant, and if you see something out of the ordinary, make sure local authorities know immediately. One of the goals of groups who commit terrorist acts is to disrupt events and cause havoc and stop people from doing their normal life activities.
