“Militants become more arrogant because the state loses control over them”

Confrontation between the police and ordinary people only inspires militants, says Sergey Arutyunov from the Russian Academy of Science. So the anti-terror operation must be based on the reinforcement of law, he told RT.

“One cannot fight anti-law and anti-social action with unlawful methods and the police are often using such methods,” Arutyunov, head of the Caucasian Studies Centre at the Russian Academy of Science said.
