Guards thwarted two attempts to penetrate storage sites for Russia's nuclear arsenal, where the "human factor" remains a weakness in security, the top general responsible for storage of warheads revealed Wednesday.
The two incidents in 2002 and 2003 involved lone suspects caught while trying to enter sites "in the European part of Russia," General-Colonel Igor Valynkin told journalists in Moscow, without providing further details.
Valynkin said the two had been handed over to the Federal Security Service "and I do not know their further fate."
In sharp contrast to alarming reports from some Western nuclear security experts, Valynkin said that he was "100 percent" satisfied with levels of protection of the arsenal.
