Keating says Americans must be vigilant at Sochi

US Representative William R. Keating said Wednesday night that he was impressed with the extensive Russian security effort at Olympic venues in Sochi, and said that Americans who travel to the Games should be safe if they take precautions.

“With all the terrorist activity that has been the case in one of the most dangerous parts of the world, security measures are enormous, too,” Keating said at Logan International Airport, after returning from a brief Russian trip that included a tour of the security systems in place in Sochi. He said the Russian government had assembled a security force of 100,000 people, including 40,000 police and 30,000 active military personnel, along with drones and six anti-missile systems.
