MOSCOW, May 25. /TASS/. Some 80,000 web-based information resources posing a threat to the national security of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) have been identified since 2009, Secretary General of the Post-Soviet security bloc Yuri Khachaturov told TASS on Thursday.
"Some 33,500 of them have been suspended or blocked. Following checks, more than 15,000 criminal cases have been initiated," Khachaturov stated. The effort was conducted as part of the Proxy operation aimed at ensuring security of electronic information networks.
Nearly 335 tonnes of drugs and more than 12,000 firearms have been seized since 2003 during the Kanal anti-drug operation carried out by CSTO member-states. Hundreds of thousands of potential crimes have been thwarted and more than 1,600 individuals, who had been on an international wanted list, have been taken into custody in the framework of the Nelegal operation since 2008.
"In 2016 alone, suspicious financial operations estimated at some $1.5 bln were detected and hundreds of channels of human trafficking were uncovered," Khachaturov pointed out. All operations involved task forces from law enforcement and security agencies of the CSTO member states.
Headquartered in Moscow, the CSTO, formed in 2002, is a regional security group comprising six post-Soviet countries - Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Armenia.
