Caucasus terrorists fight in Middle East
Russia’s FSB Chief Alexander Bortnikov notes that locals from the North Caucasus take part in anti-government groups in Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan, RIA Novosti reports.
Caucasus Emirate, a terrorist organization, sends militants to fight in the Middle East, Bortnikov said at the 11th session of intelligences, security and law enforcing chiefs in Moscow.
Syrian authorities say that they face well-armed terrorists financed by foreign states.
They are still active in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
