MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. Russian military intelligence officers are actively fighting against international terrorist groups with the use of modern weapons, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Saturday on the occasion of the Intelligence Officer Day in Russia.
"Just like before, today military intelligence officers remain reliable guarantors of the country’s security. By using all operational capabilities and modern weapons, often being subjected to mortal danger, they are actively fighting against international terrorist groups, making an invaluable contribution to strengthening the defense capabilities of the country," Shoigu said in a statement obtained by TASS.
The defense minister congratulated all servicemen, veterans and people working in the defense-industrial complex. He expressed special gratitude to veterans whose "bravery and heroism serve as an example for the young generation of defenders of the Fatherland."
"There are many brilliantly organized special operations and heroic names in the history of our military intelligence. Thanks to high professionalism of intelligence officers, their resilience, readiness to act in extreme conditions, Russian national interests have always been protected," Shoigu concluded.
The Intelligence Officer Day was established in Russia in 2000 by a decree of then-Defense Minister Igor Sergeyev. November 5 was chosen as the date because on this day in 1918 the Registration Administration for coordination of efforts of all intelligence army departments was set up.
