    MOSCOW, February 19, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - The Russian minister for national policy Vladimir Zorin backs the State Duma's (lower house) initiative to toughen punishment for terrorism.

    "The fight against terrorism requires stronger counteraction against this evil on all fronts, including tougher legislation," Zorin told reporters on Thursday.

    "Terrorism is a danger number one, and both society and authorities agree with this," said the minister. "Hence, the problem of terrorism should be addressed with an entire complex of measures." At issue, Zorin continued, is not only the sentence but also such mechanisms as the thwarting of financial channels of terror and the upgrading of training methods to raise citizens' vigilance in regard to this problem.
