MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will take part in the board meeting of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) on Thursday.
The Kremlin press service reported that "the results of the FSB investigative activities in 2016 will be summed up and priority tasks for 2017 will be identified during the meeting."
The Russian president who personally oversees all law enforcement agencies traditionally takes part in the annual FSB board meeting held at its headquarters in central Moscow.
The head of state usually addresses the participants, evaluating the FSB’s performance and setting new tasks for it. The president singles out the fight against terrorism and extremism, corruption, security at the border among the top priority issues. Last year, Putin focused on the counterterrorism operation in Syria.
Putin was in charge of the FSB in 1998-1999. During his presidency, he took part in the Federal Security Service board meetings 10 times.
