Valeriy Khoroshkovsky, the chief of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), does not see today a serious threat of terrorism in the country. "But this does not mean that this situation may lull our vigilance," he said at a news conference, UKRINFORM reported. 

According to him, the issue of possible terrorist threats in Ukraine was discussed in Dnipropetrovsk, east of Ukraine, at a meeting of the Council of Chiefs of Security Agencies and Special Services of CIS Member States.

"During the meeting it was noted that at this stage Ukraine is not a zone of heightened risk of terrorist threats. At the same time we will not reduce our capacity and strengthen work in this area, in particular, improve the activities of Anti-Terrorist Center and interaction within the CIS," Khoroshkovsky emphasized.

The new strategy of security services in the post-Soviet space identified a few areas: the fight against terrorism, extremism, drug trafficking and organized crime.

The meeting participants are confident that the work of intelligence agencies will be truly effective only when the close interaction is ensured.
