A Fire on Moscow Underground May Lead to Strict Passport Control Measures

At 10.29am on October 26, 2011 trains stopped running between Kashirskaya and Krasnogvardeyskaya underground stations, due to a fire. The fire was reportedly caused by a dropped cigarette; the police are currently establishing the culprit.

      The fire was extinguished by 12.05pm, and the train schedule was resumed. However, the Moscow Metro authorities and the Ministry for Emergency Situations state that this incident is likely to be followed by tighter security measures, including passport controls.

      Moscow is one of the cities where you must carry your passport with you at all times. This is the main identity proof in Russia, and it is especially vital to have it on you if you are foreign. Bear this in mind, and do not forget your passport, when visiting Moscow.
