Head of the Ministry of Industrial Security of the Russian Federation, Viktor Evtukhov, said that after the incident at the Wildberries warehouse, the question of strengthening requirements for the placement and operation of such objects is being considered.
Interestingly, the warehouse company worked, did not go through the necessary procedures. This, according to him, was strange: «What we know about this center Wildberries, — strange, that it worked, but also, as I understand it, was not accepted and did not go through all the necessary procedures. I think there will be a separate discussion on this matter, the relevant bodies will evaluate and give a decision. But if necessary, then, perhaps, more requirements can be made to the placement and functioning of such objects.»
Victor Yevtukhov added that cases of fires are registered not only at distribution centers of marketplaces, but also at other objects. Currently, security issues of such objects are regulated quite clearly.
«There are control-surveillance bodies, which deal with checking such objects. <…>To date, all the procedures that must be passed to launch such an object are prescribed. Another matter – how such objects can work without observing all these procedures. Here, of course, a separate conversation – I think, to which our colleagues will return again», — said Yevtukhov.
