Chief of Russian FSB Alexander Bortnikov: 'over 260 terrorists put on international wanted list.' (Caucasianknot).
More than 260 people who are engaged abroad in plotting terror acts in Russia and other countries are put on the international wanted list. Besides, in Russia, the secret services watch more than 220 potential pseudo suicide bombers. This was reported by Alexander Bortnikov, the chief of the Russian FSB.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that according to Alexander Bortnikov, in 2015, 156 militants were neutralized in Russia. Experts suggest that the most influential leaders of the "Islamic State" (IS) in Russia are still alive.
Today, at the opening of the 15th meeting of heads of secret services, security agencies and law enforcement bodies, Alexander Bortnikov has noted that Russia is engaged in activities for international search for the persons, involved in plotting and carrying out terror acts.
Among the problems faced by the law enforcement bodies of different countries, Alexander Bortnikov has mentioned glorification of suicide bombers and creation of their image as martyrs, the "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" reports.
Besides, according to the chief of the Russian FSB, a serious problem is the use of the Internet for dissemination of the ideas of aggression. Alexander Bortnikov has called on to solve the problem of anonymity and lack of control on the Internet.
In 2015, according to Alexander Bortnikov, in the Russian Federation, law enforcers identified 2900 people suspected of involvement in terrorist activities in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iraq.
