“The success of the government forces in Syria, with the support of the Armed Forces of Russia have already led to the dispersal of several large clusters of fighters. There is evidence of ongoing terrorist attempts to leave the combat zone and, using established corridors of transferring refugees to enter the countries of Europe, Asia and Russia to carry out terrorist attacks, “- said Bortnikov Tuesday at a meeting of the National Anti-Terrorist Committee in Nalchik.
