NGOs are helping terrorists: Russian FSB Chief

Foreign groups are helping terrorists recruit in Russia, according to the head of Russia's Federal Security Service, the FSB. Nikolay Patrushev made the statement at a session of the national anti-terrorist committee.

Patrushev says non-government organisations are helping terrorists who are trying to convert youth to their ideology in Russia’s south.

“Emissaries of foreign terrorists and extremist religious organisations are turning to their own advantage various social and economic problems, and ethnic and religious differences. They're trying to recruit personnel in Russia. Information is largely supplied to them by foreign non-governmental organisations,”
Patrushev said.
