MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. Russia’s special services very seriously consider threats against the country voiced by terrorists, head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s department for new challenges and threats Ilya Rogachev said in an interview to the Kommersant daily published on Friday.
"All the threats to Russian security are considered with the whole seriousness and professionalism," the diplomat said. "I’d like to note that Russia’s practical experience in countering international terrorism in the North Caucasus is the only successful example of this kind. There has been no other similarly successful experience in deradicalization of part of the population." "For all this it is necessary to be grateful to Russia’s special services, law enforcement agencies, to everyone who has put a barrier to the ‘military-scale’ terrorist threat, as we say, in the south of our country," Rogachev said.
"Today it is possible to predict the resumption of attempts to aggravate the situation in Russia using the Islamic State (IS)," he said. "Our country’s leaders have repeatedly said that the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria is aimed at containing the threat in advance."
