MOSCOW, January 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said the task of terrorism prevention could not be solved without help from the public and restoring order in provinces.
"In the late 1990s, Russians could only dream of retribution for numerous mobsters, but now the society is setting far more complex tasks before the government: to prevent tragedies and rid the country of this evil," Markin said in an interview to the newspaper Izvestia published on Tuesday.
"Prevention is the main work. We don't normally tell about prevented acts of terror and routine work of detectives and investigators," the spokesman said. "My colleagues have successfully prevented dozens of terrorist attacks in the recent years, thus saving hundreds and thousands of lives."
The tasks of preventing terrorism without restoring order in provinces, i.e. without the participation of the society cannot be fulfilled, though the forms of citizens' participation should be limited, he went on.
In his opinion, "interaction between federal bodies and an active minority of citizens /volunteers/ would be sufficient. It is the only way for taking under control mutual cover-up in provinces, and stopping the channels of illegal traffic of drugs and terrorists.
