MOSCOW, June 24. /TASS/. Senior representatives of more than 70 countries responsible for national security and a delegation of the United Nations will gather on Wednesday for a conference in Ulan-Ude, in southern Siberia’s Buryatia.
The meeting, which is already the sixth such event, is held annually at the initiative of the Russian side in one of the country's cities. Russia is represented by Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, the council’s press service said.
The participants plan to discuss issues of cooperation in the fight against the threat of global extremism and establishing the system of international information security, the council stresses.
Patrushev said information security "deals with threats ranging from cybercrime to the use of means of psychological war with the goal of zombifying the population."
The Russian Security Council chief cited as an example the misinformation on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and also the alleged Russian aggression in Ukraine.
