Affected Countries: russian-federation;
Russian President Vladimir Putin thinks that terrorist challenges and threats do not decrease. He stated this during an board meeting of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB).
“We see that the level of global threats such as terrorism, trans-border crime and cybercrime does not decrease,” the head of state said.
He particularly emphasized that issues of national security and protection of citizens from internal and external threats are a central preoccupation of the country’s leadership and the top priority.
At the same time, the Russian leader stressed that this year the board meeting is conducted in a reduced format. “Yet this doesn’t make our event today any less important; unfortunately, these are demands of the current epidemiological situation,” Putin said, addressing the FSB staff. He thanked them for professional and efficient work and readiness to resolve all issues under any conditions.
