About 7,000 police officers, soldiers, internal troops and guards will be involved in ensuring public order and safety of the citizens in the capital on 6-7 January 2013. Reinforced outfits of Moscow police are on duty around 348 Orthodox churches, monasteries and churches. At Christ the Savior Cathedral alone over 400 ATS employees are involved. Areas adjacent to places of holiday divine services, will be examined by canine handlers in advance. About 650 traffic police inspectors will ensure optimal organization of the vehicular traffic in the city. To avoid traffic jams and congestion motorists are asked to park the cars in specially designated areas, or use public transport.
Moscow's police greet all Orthodox on one of the major Christian holidays.
