Terrorists established links with ethnic gangs in Russia and Europe
FSB Head Alexander Bortnikov stated this.
"Gang leaders established strong links with large ethnic criminal gangs, supplying them with weapons, migration documents and providing other forms of assistance," Bortnikov said, opening the 16th meeting of heads of special services, security agencies and law enforcement agencies of foreign partners of the Russian FSB.
According to the Head of the FSB, the leaders of terrorist gangs use migration flows to achieve their goals. With full or even partial openness of state borders, it is easy for foreign terrorists to enter the territory of other countries under the guise of labor immigrants or refugees.
Terrorists, having established links with local ethnic OCGs, have the opportunity to supply their militants with weapons and the necessary documents for staying on the territory of target countries.
The meeting of heads of special services, security agencies and law enforcement agencies of foreign partners of the FSB of Russia is taking place from 4 to 5 October in Krasnodar on the site of the exhibition and congress complex Expo Yug. It is attended by representatives of 116 delegations from 74 countries, as well as international organizations and intergovernmental bodies - the UN, the European Union, the Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (RATS SCO), the CIS Antiterrorist Center (ATC). Experts analyze the topical issues of countering the terrorist threat in Russia. The first such meeting was held in 2002 in St. Petersburg. Then, the Russian FSB partners from 37 states took part in it.
