Due to the future Euro-2012, which will begin in Poland and Ukraine on June 8, 2012, anti-terrorist units are actively training to prevent any potential threat.
Active exercise to prevent security threat during Euro began in Polish special anti-terrorist units on Thursday, April 26. Trainings are being held in the city of Pulawy near the Polish capital of Warsaw and based on simulations of terrorist attacks on organizations and tourist centers.
According to the deputy director of one of the departments of Homeland Security Bureau Krzysztof Liedel, large public events, especially sporting events, are at increased risk and require special attention.
Mr. Liedel is not only head of a department of Homeland Security Bureau, but also one of the counter-terrorism experts and author of the report "European Football Championship 2012 in the shadow of terrorism", where among the potential threats are mentioned both jihadi groups and single terrorists .
According to Mr. Liedel, the country organizing mass events must necessarily take into account all possible types of potential threats to minimize the risk. One of the best examples is the Olympic Games in Beijing, when was created the strongest anti-terrorist system to guarantee security during the Olympics.
