SOCHI, November 10. /TASS/. Russian Prosecutor-General Yury Chaika has pointed to the need to draw together national legislations to counter online terrorist propaganda. He was speaking at the 7th regional conference of the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) of Central and Eastern European and Central Asian countries dedicated to combating terrorism and violent extremism that opened on Tuesday in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.
"I believe that in such important areas as the fight against terrorism and extremism we have the right to talk about the need to harmonize national legislations, including in the area of control and disruption of propaganda of these threats on the Internet," he said.
Chaika noted that "it would be a significant step in the implementation of international standards." "To date, criminal liability for a particular wrongdoing has not been established in all jurisdictions, which substantially hampers our practical cooperation," the prosecutor-general added.
