“The law of the Russian Federation adopted by 10 years ago for the first time gives a scientific definition of terrorism as an ideology and practice of violence”
Tears have not yet dried up on the innocent victims of the A321 disaster of the Kogalymavia company following the Sharm el-Sheikh - St. Petersburg route and the October 31 2015 blown up by terrorists over Sinai, our compatriot's 224 died, including children, and today voices are already being heard about the return of Russian tourists to the Egyptian coast.
Chairman of the State Duma Sergei Naryshkin, being in Cairo on a two-day working visit, discussed with the president and head of the parliament of the Arab Republic the possibility of resuming air traffic and selling vouchers for holidays in Egypt. The speaker said that residents of Russia will soon be able to fly there again. Is it premature?
The terrorists who blew up the Russian airliner have not yet been caught. Serious measures to improve security at the airports of Egypt are not taken, because in such a short time it is simply impossible. I am referring to the opening of the terrorist network of agents, the selection of new personnel, the checking and strengthening of security services, the saturation of terminals with effective technical means of control, etc. All this cannot be done in three months.
It is not a secret that in Egypt attendants in many places are affected by corruption. For a small fee, you can get into any hotel, in the past years our fellow citizens could be convinced more than once, go to the runway, infiltrate the airport workers ... What are the guarantees today that the tragedy over Sinai will not happen again? Unfortunately, they are not. At least nothing is reported about them.
It is known that we often step on the same rake. But maybe we’ll be alerted by the new terrorist attack aboard A321, which February 2 flew from Mogadishu (the capital of Somalia) to Djibouti with 60 passengers on board, including crew members. Only one person died, the others were saved by a fluke - the plane did not reach a great height, and the consequences of the explosion were local, which allowed the pilot to land the car.
All this suggests that the IG - not just a gang of bandits. This is a monster, created at the time by the hands of the United States, but out of control of the owner. This monster has an extensive network of cells and agents around the world, prepared by suicide bombers, streamlined financing channels, supply weapons... As confirmed by the protracted battles in Syria, the ongoing terrorist attacks. So, the fight with the monster will be long and bloody, which should be remembered by our fellow citizens.
In this regard, let me remind you that in March 10 years of the federal law “On Countering Terrorism” (adopted by 6 in March on 2006 in December, and in the latest edition - in 31 in December of 2014) is executed. He established the basic principles of counteracting this evil, the legal and organizational basis for preventing and combating it, minimizing and / or eliminating the consequences of its manifestations, as well as the conditions for use in counter-terrorist operations of the Armed Forces of the country. The law first defines terrorism as a phenomenon. Terrorism is understood as “the ideology of violence and the practice of influencing decision-making by the authorities ...”
This “split” view of the phenomenon under consideration allowed us to formulate state responses in a different way, namely, to consider the fight against terrorism as part of a wider system of measures to counter it.
Thanks largely to this law and the measures taken, Russia managed to practically localize terrorism in the North Caucasus, although some of its manifestations, in particular in Dagestan, remain. And this means that in no case should we calm down and relax in the struggle against this many-headed hydra, be fully armed.
