Belarus’ Prosecutor General: there can be no complacency and temporary relaxation in fight against extremism and terrorism

Prosecutor General Andrei Shved said this at a meeting devoted to the military and security agencies’ activity held with participation of the President


Paying attention to problematic issues of the law enforcement sphere, Mr. Shved stressed, “The number of violations of the airspace use by unmanned aerial vehicles and ultra-small aircraft is growing. We should have already adopted the uniform rules for the use, sale and operation of drones, as well as strengthened liability measures.”

According to the Prosecutor General, an important place in the fight against extremism is occupied by counteraction in the information sphere. “Attempts have intensified to manipulate young people, to create informal movements and combat groups capable of fulfilling any order for money, which can be used to sway the situation, participate in illegal mass events and riots. In this regard, it is necessary to strengthen the work on prevention and suppression of the activities of such movements, their leaders and active participants. There can be no complacency and temporary relaxation in the fight against extremism and terrorism, since this might lead to serious consequences," he stressed.
