Picture: AFPTASS: IS terrorists defeated in Syria and Iraq still running global offshoots, says FSB chief Moscow. 
The Islamic State terrorist organization (outlawed in Russia), which has been crushed in Syria and Iraq, continues running its branches abroad and plans to set up divisions in a number of regions, Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) Director Alexander Bortnikov said on Wednesday, as cited by 
TASS
.

"Now major terrorist forces in Syria and Iraq have been defeated and their plans on creating a caliphate have been ruined," Bortnikov told a Sochi meeting of the heads of intelligence agencies, security services and law enforcement agencies from 79 countries.

"However, groups active there continue controlling their international branches, deploying terrorists with combat experience to other countries with the goal of creating sleeper cells and building new criminal networks there," Bortnikov claimed.

According to the FSB chief, terrorist organizations have been cherishing hopes of creating regional branches in the Middle East, Africa, Afghanistan and Southeast Asia. "A process is underway on decentralizing ISIL [formerly the IS] activity and switching to a network principle of actions," he noted.

Another serious threat is the so-called autonomous jihad when lone wolf terrorists or small groups carry out terror attacks themselves, Bortnikov stressed.


Over 43,500 people involved in terrorism listed in the international counterterrorism database
Over 43,500 people involved in terrorism have been included in the international counterterrorism database created on the initiative of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), while a third of them are militants that fought in hotspots, the FSB director reported.

According to him, currently, the database "includes data on 116 terrorist organizations and 43,500 persons."

"Nearly a third of them are foreign terrorist militants," the FSB chief noted.

Bortnikov offered his colleagues from special services to use the database as one of the means of supporting counterterrorism activity. Forty-seven special services from 36 countries have access to the database by now, along with eight departments within international organizations, including the UN, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and Interpol.

Among the goals of security cooperation, Bortnikov listed uncovering the plans of heads of terrorist organizations, determining the main routes of transporting foreign militants and their gathering places and obtaining information on every criminal, including their online profile. He added that the exchange of information must be carried out in real time.

He also called on the security services to detect commercial enterprises under the control of terrorists and to eliminate terrorist financing schemes via the Hawala system.


Problem of unwillingness of IT companies to cooperate with special services in cybersecurity
The head of the Russian Federal Security Service has highlighted the unwillingness of IT companies to cooperate with special services in cybersecurity as a serious issue, as messenger services are the main communication tool between criminals.

"With its global coverage, the Internet is becoming the main platform for promoting the ideology of terrorism, recruitment and dissemination of information on ways to carry out terrorist attacks. Online messengers with a high level of cryptosecurity are still the main means of communication between criminals," he stated.

"In this regard, we see the unwillingness of several leading IT companies to cooperate with special services in the sphere of information security as a serious issue," Bortnikov underscored.

According to him, currently, there is a rising threat of terrorists using wireless networks that do not depend on cellular service or Internet access when carrying out terrorist attacks.


Roughly 7,000 dead, wounded across the globe due to terrorism in 2019
About 7,000 people have been killed or wounded in terrorist attacks across the globe in 2019 alone, Alexander Bortnikov reported.

"International terrorist organizations have suffered substantial damage thanks to vigorous efforts by our countries' intelligence community. However, large international terrorist organizations, primarily ISIL [the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, former name of the Islamic State, outlawed in Russia — TASS] and al-Qaeda have retained their capability to continue their criminal activities," Bortnikov stressed. "As a result, more than 1,500 attacks, which left about 7,000 people dead or wounded, have been carried out across the globe in 2019 alone."

This being so, intelligence services need to adjust their approach to the war on terror, increase the effectiveness of interaction, take concerted efforts, step up information sharing and intensify work in information environment, he noted.


Over 5,000 Russians who joined terrorists in hotspots identified
The Federal Security Service has identified more than 5,000 Russian nationals who travelled to hotspots to fight alongside terrorists, according to the FSB director. "More than 5,000 Russian citizens who travelled abroad to take part in the fighting alongside terrorists have been identified," Bortnikov said.

Criminal cases have been opened against almost 4,000 of them based on the obtained evidence.

In these intense and challenging moments, it is imperative to focus on articulating the life project for the Country that Puerto Rican society demands to give a clear and forceful response to the demand for good governance. The changes that citizens demand and demand our times in the quality of public services and government results are monumental and require immediate attention. To achieve this, it is essential to close the gap between the obsolescence of the parties, the bureaucracy sometimes disconnected and the emergence of a society more attentive and active to the performance of its government.
When responding to these demands, we must assume serious and firm commitments for the welfare of all. Only by articulating an open and transparent government can we realize the right of access to information and spaces for deliberation, authentic dialogue and reflective governance to strengthen the ability of citizens to engage in the search for solutions and decisions of matters that concern them.
According to Unesco, the transparency and access to information gap constituting an obstacle to the development of knowledge that undermines governance and the formulation of strategic public policies and programs in favor of the population's quality of life. In this sense, the transparency of information as a public good allows to generate knowledge and critical capacity to interpret, process and use the information and transform it into knowledge and knowledge to freely express their opinion, argue, solve problems and make decisions based on data for the Good of all. In turn, the right to free expression and access to information is an essential pillar of governance because it allows as many citizens as possible to contribute,
Los estudios de investigación académica realizados por el Centro de Gobernanza plantean que la crisis social y económica que vivimos no se resolverá con reformas cosméticas, sino mediante una auténtica reforma de la gobernanza que permita reorientar las políticas públicas en los sectores políticos, sociales, institucionales y económicos. El libro resultado del más reciente estudio sobre La gobernanza y los medios de comunicación en Puerto Rico, publicado en mayo último, puntualiza que se necesita un entorno político de apertura y transparencia para que los ciudadanos puedan contribuir al diagnóstico, el análisis y la evaluación de los asuntos económicos, sociales y políticos. Las promesas de transparencia y rendición de cuentas en el gobierno deben acompañarse de un marco jurídico de transparencia y acceso a la información que garantice acceso pleno y abierto a la información de interés público que está en manos del gobierno.
Ante este escenario el gobierno tiene la obligación de transparentar y asegurar la calidad de la información pública. La prensa y los medios de comunicación deben facilitar a los ciudadanos la información que precisan para ejercer sus derechos democráticos y ejercer su función de fiscalización y vigilancia de los poderes políticos. Los partidos tienen la obligación de convertirse en verdaderos instrumentos democráticos para atender las necesidades apremiantes de la población. Y los ciudadanos deben involucrarse en la solución de sus problemas y la fiscalización de la gestión de gobierno.
Para hacer frente a este desafío se requiere de nuevas articulaciones de gobierno en redes y de un ecosistema de medios que abra espacios al involucramiento de sectores diversos de la sociedad. La gobernanza en redes rompe con las asimetrías de información y poder y tiene la capacidad de sustentar, coordinar y gestionar las relaciones diversas para resolver problemas y lograr respaldo para atender la complejidad de la sociedad. En este contexto, la gobernanza abierta que demanda la sociedad del conocimiento implica una redefinición de los partidos, de la administración pública, los medios de comunicación y del periodismo y su relación con el ciudadano.
Faced with the current situation, it is clear that our society can never move forward if it does not have the information to generate knowledge and innovate to transform its reality. Citizens and organizations emerge as the only ones capable of promoting real changes that transcend the electoral to guarantee that the people are the true power and not that only a few come to power so as not to govern in favor of the common good. It is time for citizens to exercise their right to obtain the necessary information to demand accountability and raise the quality of democracy.

M.N.: Investigate the entire upper echelon of the Obama’s FBI! The least that they can be accused of is the manifest and obvious, utter professional incompetence. The worst, no one wants to think and to talk about. They made the FBI and the American political system the laughing stock of the world. They undermined the American and the Global Security.
