“The state represented by the law enforcement unit has been steadily embodies the principle of inevitability of punishment for committed crimes, regardless of the period of limitation. Since January 2010, in the high-profile terrorist crimes found 3 796 thousand. the most Recent example of our commitment to this principle, the detention of Daudov is wanted for involvement in the attack on Budyonnovsk in 1995,” said Bortnikov.
Intensification of cooperation of security services
According to the head of the FSB, increasing the threat of terrorism requires translation of interaction of special services at the practical level, with the active use of all available forms of cooperation.
Bortnikov noted that “some Western countries, occupying a Supervisory position, in fact, acquiesced to the formation of extensive terrorist networks operating beyond the middle East and let the deep roots even in those countries who had never faced a real threat of radical Islam”.
Noting that attempts to give the Syrian ethno-religious conflict in nature due to the political situation, he stressed: “our work build on the fact that a terrorist has no nationality or creed, wherever he was and whatever slogans was not covered, he is, above all, a dangerous criminal who needs to be neutralized”.
Alexander Bortnikov said that “during July of this year (in Yaroslavl – approx.) XIV Meeting of heads of special services, security agencies and law enforcement bodies of foreign States – partners of FSB of Russia on fight against terrorism, experts from around the world stated this fact as real and urgent problem requiring immediate solutions.”

An international databank on counteraction to terrorism”, – said the Chairman of the NAC.
The Syrian conflict
Bortnikov also believes that attempts to give the Syrian conflict ethno-religious character is due only to political expediency.
“We see attempts by some external force to give the Syrian conflict ethno-religious character. This cynical approach, which is pursued selfish goals, due to political expediency, and is not taken into account the plight of people caught in the zone of armed confrontation,” – said Bortnikov.
“Bandits destroy indiscriminately and Sunnis, and Shias, and Kurds, and Christians, and this happens when the active material and ideological support for their atrocities from the outside. So to say that the majority of Arab States opposed the anti-terrorist actions by the Syrian government, and Russian military assistance, at least, irresponsible,” – said Bortnikov.
He stressed that “our work build on the fact that a terrorist has no nationality or religion”. “Wherever he was and whatever slogans was not covered, he is, above all, a dangerous criminal who must be neutralized”, – said the head of the FSB.
Bortnikov recalled that the President of Russia Vladimir Putin took a decision to provide military assistance to the legitimate government of the Syrian Arab Republic, “which for the past few years, almost single-handedly fighting the largest in the history of the terrorist group calling itself the “Islamic state”. “All this time, its ranks are continuously replenished by new converts adepts, the geography of Exodus, covering nowadays most countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, – said Bortnikov. – Trained in methods of conducting guerrilla warfare in urban and field conditions, with significant resource and financial base, the bandits get real combat experience, and spread all over the world, widely expanding its public awareness campaign to involve new members.”
“Some Western countries, occupying a Supervisory position, in fact, acquiesced to the formation of extensive terrorist networks operating beyond the middle East and let the deep roots even in those countries who had never faced a real threat of radical Islam,” added the Director of the FSB.
Reduction posobnitsey base
Alexander Bortnikov also said that the national anti-terrorist Committee will assess the work to posobnitsey narrowing of the base of the bandit underground in the North Caucasus.
He recalled that “the level of terrorist activity in the region is largely determined by the presence of posobnitsey base for the armed underground with the necessary resources” and combating this activity was devoted to exit meeting of the NAC held in August of last year in Ingushetia.
The head of the NJSC noted that then adopted the resolution “provided for measures to strengthen preventive work and the Association in this direction the efforts of Federal Executive bodies and antiterrorist commissions (in the regions – ed.)”. Antiterrorist commissions in subjects of North Caucasus Federal district were instructed to focus their attention on taking action against citizens who had been influenced by radicals and religious extremists, and conduct active counter-propaganda in contrast to the aggressive ideology of Islam by radical clerics, recalled Bortnikov. Security authorities and law and order task was to realize the target of an investigative and preventive measures aimed at narrowing posobnitsey base of a bandit underground, eliminating the channels of its financing, the attempts by destructive influences from abroad on the political situation in the North Caucasus.
“Today we will assess the results of the work, to discuss existing problems, and to develop additional measures to combat posobnitsey activity taking into account peculiarities of the operational environment and the degree of meeting previously set objectives,” he said.
