    DOMODEDOVO (Moscow Region), February 9, 2004. (RIA Novosti ). The Federal Security Service (FSB) of Russia deems it necessary that more powers be granted to security services in combating terrorism, Vyacheslav Ushakov, deputy head of the FSB, said on Monday.

    Speaking before the deputies who were elected to the State Duma for the first time Ushakov said that primarily it is necessary to elaborate and adopt such laws which would allow to preclude and detect terrorist organizations at early stages of their development.

    Ushakov noted that this year the number of terrorist acts in Russia, perhaps, would not diminish. In particular, he did not exclude the possibility that terrorist acts might be committed "on transport, the nuclear power plants and in the energy sector".

    According to the FSB deputy head the intensification of terrorist activity not only in Chechnya but also outside it may testify to the fact that some countries are interested in "turning the republic into the center of world terrorism."
