Sergey Zheleznyak: “The terrorist attack in Vienna is a challenge to European society aimed at destabilizing the situation and intimidating the civilian population”

“The terrorist attack in Vienna is a challenge to European society, aimed at destabilizing the situation and intimidating the civilian population. In Russia, they strongly condemn any kind of manifestation of extremism and are ready to cooperate with Austria in countering terrorism. ” This was stated by Sergey Zheleznyak, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs.

The politician expressed his condolences to the relatives of those killed and injured in the attack. He noted: “This is not the first time we have seen the intensification of international terrorism in various European countries, and this causes deep concern. In Russia, any manifestation of extremism is a criminal offense. I am convinced that the Austrian leadership will take the necessary measures to bring all those involved to justice. Terrorism has no justification and must receive a tough rebuff from civilized countries around the world. ”

The MP noted that “European countries do not pay close enough attention to the problem of countering terrorism. Europe’s policy with its open door principle, the declaration of democratic rights and freedoms of citizens often encounters the problem of integrating migrants from countries with different values ​​from European ones into their society. It should be clearly understood that extremism and terrorism are not the ideology of Islam. Today, when the public safety of many countries is under threat, this division is extremely important.

In turn, Russia can offer our European partners successful practices developed over many years of maintaining social harmony and stability in our country. “
