MOSCOW, October 14 (Itar-Tass) - Over 98% of terror-related crimes are committed in the North Caucasus Federal District, the first deputy chairman of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee, Yevgeny Ilyin, told the conference The Role of the Media and Internet in Terrorism Prevention on Monday.
“Over 98% of terror-related crimes occur in the North Caucasian Federal District, most of them in the Republic of Dagestan,” said Ilyin. He added most of the instigators were resident abroad.
“Suffice it to look at such international organizations as Al-Qaeda, the Caucasus Emirate, and Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami that aim to stir up terrorist activity in our country,” said Ilyin.
Ilyin also said it was the Internet that played a major role in spreading extremist and terrorist ideas. According to foreign sources, Internet-sites that propagate extremist ideas and instruct visitors in staging terrorist attack number up to 10,000 worldwide.
