CIS special services to conduct combating terrorism on the Web exercises

The special services of CIS countries intend to hold large-scale exercises on detection of recruiters of terrorist organizations and their emissaries on the social networking websites. The head of the CIS Anti-Terrorist Centre, Colonel General Andrey Novikov stated, speaking at a meeting of the heads of the centers for fight against terrorism.

As noted, the joint Dushanbe-Antiterror exercises are to take place in late May 2017 and at the beginning of June in six states — Belarus, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan. They will involve a variety of security services, the military and a number of authorized bodies. The final stage of the exercises will take place in Tajikistan.

«We set a main goal — training of skills on interaction and detection of outreach extremist activity. Ideological indoctrination of the population by terrorists is unacceptable, and the fight against it must take place by all possible means," the general said.

Terrorists have progressed far enough in this sphere, because they use not only to the vast possibilities of social networks, but also many other functions of the Internet.
