"Chechen trace" is clearly seen in many western states

The "Chechen trace" can be seen more clearly now in many West European states, said the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Anatoly Safonov in an interview with L'Opinione delle Liberta, an Italian newspaper.

In the words of the deputy minister, tens or even hundreds of foreign mercenaries are among terrorists in Chechnya.

"There's kind of exchange of experience, perfection of forms and methods of their criminal activity," Mr. Safonov said.

If the West knows or pretends to know little about terrorists from Chechnya, it's high time to pay more heed to them. They present a real threat not only to Russia but to European countries as well, the deputy minister stressed.

In his words, what unites all terrorists is full absence of moral values, frank cynicism, and aggressive neglect for human life.

Speaking about the differences and particular features of terrorism in Russia and in the West, he said there are practically none. In the Russian diplomat's opinion, there can't be a dividing line between international and so-called "Russian terrorism".

"People who chose terror, their cells, groups are part of one whole, which is usually and rightfully called 'Terrorist International'." That's why terrorists so easily understand each other, do not compete but actively interact instead, Safonov said.
