The number of terrorist acts in Russia nearly halved last year, from 257 in 2005 to 152 in 2006
The number of terrorist acts in Russia nearly halved last year, from 257 in 2005 to 152 in 2006, Sergei Bezmin from the National Counter-Terrorism Committee said at a conference entitled “Civil Society Institutions against Crime, New Threats and Challenges.” The number of terrorist acts dropped from 111 to 74 in Chechnya, and from 77 to 17 in Dagestan, he said. Law enforcement agencies have thwarted the coordination of illegal armed units and put an end to the activities of 120 notorious ringleaders, Bezmin said. They also prevented an armed attack on the administration of Cherkessk, which might have been comparable with the attack on Nalchik in April 2005. “The police exposed 220 armament caches and closed down 186 websites used by the illegal armed units and another 100 websites that showed how one could make a bomb. “That was done thanks to the law enforcers and administrations in North Caucasian republics,” Bezmin said. Illegal armed units in the North Caucasus were the main threat to Russia’s security last year, he said. The leaders of the illegal armed groups, who enjoyed support from abroad, were trying to spread their activities outside Chechnya. Law enforcers had to take adequate measures. National anti-terrorist institutions were formed, including the National Counter-Terrorism Committee, the Federal Headquarters, and regional counter-terrorism commissions. “As of June 1, 2007, anti-terrorist commissions were formed in 83 constituents of the Russian federation,” he said.
