MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that the law enforcement agencies should effectively counter the threat of drugs, crime and extremism and focus on the protection of citizens’ rights.

"Russia continues to face active foreign drug aggression. We can see an influx of not only traditional, but also new chemical narcotic drugs," he said urging the Federal Drug Control Service to counter this threat more actively.

Putin pointed to the need to have a clear vision of the course of the military and political processes in certain sensitive regions and in the world as a whole. "I hope that employees of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service will continue to provide a timely impartial analysis, the forecast of the likely course of events," the president said.

He reminded law enforcement officers of the tasks facing them. He noted that the Interior Ministry should increase the level of crime detection, to provide a firm response to any manifestations of extremism, ethnic and religious intolerance and enmity. Putin urged law enforcers to more actively use modern means of control over order in public places.

"As before, the prosecution agencies should focus on protecting the rights of citizens, the rule of law in the social sphere. It is necessary to react immediately to the facts of untimely payment of wages, non-fulfillment of citizens’ social guarantees, to identify breach of law in all areas, including in housing maintenance and utilities," the president said. He added that the prosecutor’s office and other law enforcement agencies should more actively protect the rights of businesses and "firmly terminate any attempts to put obstacles in the way of businesses."
