Vladimir Chertok, the deputy head of Russia's Federal Service for Transport Supervision (Rostransnadzor), said earlier this week that Russia's transport watchdog is considering raising fines for unruly passengers to thousands of US dollars by obliging them to cover costs caused by their actions.

Preflight screening and seaport security are two areas where Russia falls short compared with international standards, but elsewhere the situation is worse, the deputy head of the Federal Agency for Monitoring Transportation, Vladimir Chertok, said in an interview.
He did not elaborate. Voitenko was echoed by Chertok, who called "the lack of timely information the main problem in fighting terrorism." Chertok pointed out that official security checks at private facilities, like Domodedovo, are rare and predictable. Moreover, a 2008 law bans officials from examining private enterprises more often than once every three years. But Chertok said it has led to unexpected drawbacks for security. "If a check is conducted once every three years, then the owner can simply correct all the shortcomings right before the check," Chertok said. Safety could be boosted significantly if travelers would remember to scan their surroundings for suspicious people or objects, Chertok said. "People have become more attentive. They telephone relevant agencies and give information," Chertok said.
