During the meeting the Russian President, Vladimir Putin said that there were still challenges. He urged the security service not to allow ethnic and religious intolerance to affect the coming elections.

“Recently we stepped up the level of a possible terrorists’ threat, it proved to be united test for the key parts of anti terrorists’ network. All the parts were crucial – warnings of citizens, a coordination of law machinery of regional and federal authorities. Of course, we have other challenges outstanding.
