    Additional security measures were introduced in Moscow after recent Brussels assault.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Authorities in the Russian capital have introduced additional security measures after recent terror attacks in Europe, Alexei Mayorov, head of Moscow’s department of regional security said Tuesday.

    "We have received recommendations from law enforcement agencies and passed them to responsible workers… City services currently carry out all recommendations from special senior law enforcement agencies," Mayorov said at the Rossiya Segodnya press center in Moscow during a press conference on protecting public order.

    He added that the proposed measures included maintaining the work of vital infrastructures.

    On March 22, two suicide blasts ripped through the Brussels Airport departure hall in the northeastern municipality of Zaventem. A further explosion occurred at the Maelbeek station near EU institutions. A total of 35 people died in the attacks and more than 300 were injured.
