One of the reasons for the growing threat of terrorist attacks on the Crimean peninsula is that, that international terrorists return from abroad to Crimea. Before that, they took part in hostilities in hot spots of the planet..
About this during a meeting on national security, organized in Sevastopol, said Nikolay Patrushev, current secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation.
As an example, illustrating his words, he told, what's in Simferopol 9 April, the Russian special services did not allow the terrorist act to be committed, which the militants of the radical group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, banned in the Russian Federation, wanted to arrange.
Patrushev also noted, that the aggravation of the situation in Crimea may occur due to the subversive activities of the United States, countries of the European Union and Ukraine, who will try to play on interethnic and interfaith contradictions. They also seek to discredit the foreign and domestic policy of the Russian Federation.. This could pose a threat to national security in the region.
The prerequisites for the emergence of threats to national security remain on the territory of the Crimean Peninsula, due to the possible complication of interethnic, sectarian environment and the likelihood of terrorist attacks.
