GROZNY, May 21 (Itar-Tass) — The threat of terrorist acts, including those staged by suicide bombers, remains high in North Caucasus and law enforcers should do their utmost to prevent international extremists’ attempts to destabilize the situation on Russia’s southern borders, Acting Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev told a meeting in the Chechen capital on Monday.
“We should do our utmost to keep effective our anti-terrorist efforts in the North Caucasus region in general, especially in spring-summer, when militants traditionally become active,” he said.
Nurgaliyev stressed the need for further fight against extremist manifestations in Dagestan, where the situation remains complicated.
He reiterated that at the end of April a temporary response force was set up in the republic to provide assistance to local law enforcers.
The minister also stressed the need to create counterpropaganda in the media and social networks.
