High ranking delegation of Russian Railways (RZD) headed by the company's deputy chief for security, visited Israel recently to study Israeli security methods applied for the protection of Israel's railway system.

Authorities pointed the finger at Islamist militants from the Northern Caucasus for the deadliest attack in Moscow for half a decade.
 
Following the terrorist attacks the Russian government approved special security budget for the protection of Russian's railway system.
 
During the visit the delegation were made familiarized with Israel's railway state-of-the-art security systems and met 10 Israeli firms involved in Homeland Security.
