Domodedovo access control system is state of "anarchy" - Medvedev

MOSCOW. Jan 25 (Interfax) - Domodedovo Airport's system that is meant to monitor the movements of people entering or exiting the premises of the airport is a state of "anarchy", Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said.

"The information available to us suggests that it was simply a state of anarchy. People were able to enter [the airport] from any place. Control over people's movements was partial and did not apply to those waiting for passengers," Medvedev said at a session of the Federal Security Service board in Moscow.

"Not a single metal detector helped in this situation," he said.

The recent events have revealed that measures taken by the transport security service are insufficient.
