In an interview with TV channel «Russia 24» Patrushev noted that despite the successes in combating international terrorists in the middle East, the destruction of many fighters, their structure is not reduced.
«They (the terrorist group — ed.) quite efficiently feed yourself with new men who join them. As soon as we liberate Syria or exempt the territory of Iraq, flowing from, for example, in Libya or Afghanistan. In fact, they do not become less», — said Patrushev.
He noted that the Russian security services monitor these processes, including attempts to return to Russia militants who came from Russia.
