In parallel from March15 in Astana one more OPM “Station” is carried out. It will last until June 1. During the raids, about 400 police and National Guard officers will bypass the residents of the capital with a check of registration at the place of residence and temporary registration. As the law officers say, they are more concerned with the problem of homeless and beggars in the streets of the capital on the threshold of the international specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017.

Not only people are responsible for the safety of EXPO 2017 visitors, there will also be involved 35 guard dogs that are trained to find drugs and dangerous substances, and as the cynologists have assured, they are ready to perform their duties at the exhibition.
