ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) – Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) Director Alexander Bortnikov proposed on Thursday to merge national databases of terrorists for more effective fight against terrorism.

"Those databases in Europe in the framework of the Interpol, the European Union, Russia and other states should be united. The UN Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate is supporting us in this issue… Almost every security service has a huge amount of information. But that are separated databases, which should be united," Bortnikov told journalists after a meeting of the heads of special and security services and law enforcement.

Bortnikov added that Russia created two databases of terrorists. One of them is open and contains information about people committed crimes and terrorist organization. "Up to date 30 security services and 24 states have joined the open database," Bortnikov noted.

The other database is classified containing confidential information of the Russian security services.

Over the past two weeks, a wave of attacks has occurred in Europe, including a truck running over a crowd in France's Nice and a suicide bombing near an open-air music festival in Ansbach, a city in the German state of Bavaria, which has pushed Europe to urgently and extensively boost its safety and security measures.
