MOSCOW, September 24. /TASS/. The number of terrorist crimes on the territory of CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) countries has doubled over the last year, CIS Anti-Terrorist Center head Police Colonel-General Andrey Novikov said on Thursday.
"A total of 1,515 terrorist crimes were registered on the territory of CIS member countries in 2014. It is almost twice as much as in 2013," Novikov told the conference "Preventing involvement of youths into activities of terrorist and extremist organizations" held in Russia’s Belgorod.
The number of extremist crimes is also growing, he noted adding that a total of 1,474 such crimes were registered in 2014, while the number stood at 1,197 in 2013.
Novikov stressed that among these crimes are "not only committed terrorist attacks, but also crimes that create the ‘infrastructure’ for terrorism." "They involve recruiting people to terrorist organizations, financing them and providing materials, as well as propaganda of terrorism," he said.
"Russian Interior Ministry’s main department on countering extremism and its territorial departments make all possible efforts to identify and find people that propagate extremist ideas, organize extremist activities and recruit others to such organizations," Novikov noted.
