Terroristi Mogli Zakhvatit AES za odnu minutu
According to information published in the Finnish newspaper the Helsinki Sanomat, Russian special forces recently tested the security at the Kola Nuclear Power Plant in Polyarnyye Zori (Murmansk Oblast). In a super secret operation unknown even to the director of the NPP four members of the Alpha special forces group were able to penetrate the plant gain access to the main reactor control room and tie up the operators working there in under one minute. They were able to sneak onto the grounds of the NPP by dressing in the uniforms of repairmen. Both the guards at the main gate and the guards at the building waved the men through even though they did not have identification passes. The men told the guards that they had left their ID passes in their dormatory.
