MOSCOW, January 29. /TASS/. A deputy head of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), Valery Domnin, has reported to the United Nations about the cooperation in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization outlawed in Russia.
Maj. Gen. Domnin, who led a working group of the Meeting of Heads of Special Services, Security Agencies and Law-Enforcement Organizations of foreign states-partners of the FSB, addressed the UN Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Committee in New York on Thursday.
The members of the committee were informed about the results of the work of the 14th meeting held in July 2015 in Russia’s Yaroslavl, to the northeast of Moscow, and its projects, the FSB public relations center told TASS.
