AMMAN, October 6. /TASS/. Russia's launch of air strikes against Islamic State in Syria does not raise the terror threat level faced by Russia from armed radical groups, the leader of Russia's upper house told reporters on Tuesday.
Security and power-wielding agencies were "taking all measures to ensure national security of the country and its citizens", Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said after talks with Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh, noting that Russia knew first-hand the nature of international terrorism.
"Our law enforcement agencies have extensive experience in the fight against international terrorism. Terrorist activity has been declining in successive recent years," she stated, hailing Russian efficiency in fending off the threat.
Russian aerospace forces launched pinpoint strikes against Islamic State targets in Syria on September 30 with a Syria-based group assembling more than 50 warplanes and helicopters.
Air strikes are delivered at military hardware, communications centers, transport vehicles, munitions depots and other infrastructure. Military operations are conducted at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
