    MOSCOW, April 13 (RIA Novosti) - First State Duma Vice-Speaker Lyubov Sliska came out for the elaboration of a common national strategy to counter terrorism. The struggle against terrorism is a complex problem which requires coordination of all forces and means, and a purposeful state policy, she said at the parliamentary hearings on Tuesday, dedicated to this problem.

    The public danger of terrorism is that it provokes the authority to retaliatory violence, destabilizes democratic institutions and increases the number of violations of human rights and freedoms, the first vice-speaker stressed.

    Russia is now facing the problem which does not have analogues, and the authorities' activity should be systemic and should include all security levels, Sliska said. She also emphasized that terrorists should not be viewed as fighters for national liberation.

    Sliska also regretted that the mass media did not determine their place in opposing political extremism and ideology of terrorism so far. She believes that the mass media should restrict the propaganda of cruelty and violence.

    Another problem conducive to the appearance of terrorism, Sliska said, is uncontrolled migration and added that about four million migrants are illegally staying in Russia now. Uncontrolled migration threatens national security, and its connection with terrorism strongly increases this threat, the first vice-speaker pointed out. She also came out for pooling the efforts of states on an international level to fight terrorism.
