MOSCOW, June 9. /TASS/. International terrorism will go on recruiting more gunmen for new hotbeds of tension, secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolay Patrushev said on Tuesday.
"The analysis of information about the situation in the Middle East gives grounds to say that new hotbeds of terrorist activities are springing up," he told journalists. "Hence, international terrorist organizations will go on recruiting more gunmen to send them to these areas."
Commenting on the case with Russian student Varvara Karaulova, who had been detained at the Turkish-Syrian border on June 4, Patrushev said the girl along with 12 more detained Russian nationals was planning to join the terrorist group Islamic State.
"The recent case with the Russian student is not the only example of recruiting the youth by radical Islamists," he said. "The Islamic State, like other terrorist organizations, is actively recruiting Russian nationals and citizens of CIS states and other countries of the world focusing on the youth and national minorities."
He called on "security services and law enforcement agencies of countries to pool their efforts to terminate the activities of recruiters and prevent their citizens’ leaving their countries to join terrorist organizations."
