Some 67,000 police officers will maintain public order in Russia during countrywide festivities dedicated to the June 12 Russia Day celebrations.

Some 67,000 police officers will maintain public order in Russia during countrywide festivities dedicated to the June 12 Russia Day celebrations, a first deputy interior minister said.

"Over 67,000 policemen, 7,700 military servicemen as well as staffers of non-governmental security bodies and public organizations will be on duty in order to provide public order and security during Russia Day," Col.-Gen. Mikhail Sukhodolsky said.

Earlier Moscow's police chief Vladimir Kolokoltsev said more than 4,000 policemen would provide security in the center of the Russian capital during the festivities.

The holiday has been celebrated since 1992. It was introduced to mark the official declaration of State Sovereignty of the Russian Soviet Federative Republic on June 12, 1990.
