UNITED NATIONS, May 11 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, said on Thursday Sweden’s authorities failed to fulfill the UN Security Council’s requirement to stop the activities of the Kavkaz Centre, which is known to be an extremist web resource.
Speaking at a joint briefing of chairs of the UN SC counter-terrorism committees, Churkin noted that the Stockholm-based website of the Caucasus Emirate terrorist organization that was put on the sanctions list in July 2011 continues to operate.
“Thus, Resolution no. 1989 of the UN Security Council of June 2011, which requires financial sanctions against the website putting to a stop its activities has not been fulfilled so far,” Churkin said. “Sweden’s authorities still cannot implement this instruction, in fact allowing this web resource to further promote the ideas of terrorism and religious intolerance.”
Earlier Russia’s Special Presidential Representative for International Cooperation in Combating Terrorism and Trans-National Organised Crime, Alexander Zmeyevsky, called for consolidated response to new terrorist challenges, including those in the cyberspace.
In this respect he called for strict compliance with the UN Security Council’s requirement to close websites promoting terrorism such as the Kavkaz Centre.
These efforts “should be supplemented with the development of a global agreement for counteracting the use of the cyberspace for terrorist or other criminal purposes,” he said.
The Kavkaz Centre was created in Grozny, Chechnya, in March 1999. In different time its servers were based in Estonia, Lithuania, Finland and Sweden.
