    MOSCOW, April 13 (RIA Novosti) - The participants in the parliamentary hearings concerning the fight against terrorism, which were held on Tuesday in the State Duma, speak for the improvement of the antiterrorist legislation in Russia.

    According to the Chairman of the State Duma Security Committee, Vladimir Vasilyev, the main directions of the work in this particular sphere will be the promotion of the role and responsibility of all antiterrorist activity subjects, protection of rights and interests of terrorist acts' victims, provision of extra powers to antiterrorism structures as well as provision of punishment inevitability for participation in terrorist activities.

    The chairman of the committee also stated the necessity of proper financing and technical provision of antiterrorist structures.

    Moreover, the deputy believes it's necessary to conduct an expertise of the current legislation on the issue of terrorism vulnerability. First of all it goes for living and industrial construction, development of transportation networks, readiness of health care bodies and the emergencies ministry in the time of emergency situations.

    According to him, the most vulnerable in Russia are important industrial and vital activity facilities as well as the whole Moscow infrastructure of municipal services. Moscow became the second member of the federation following Chechnya by the number of committed terrorist attacks, Mr. Vasilyev stressed.

    The chairman of the security committee called upon the law enforcement structures to interact with society in the fight against the terrorism.

    "Law enforcement bodies should cooperate more closely with people in the fight against terrorism without the fear that it could be interpreted as a weakness of the power structures," Mr. Vasilyev said.

    According to him, the recent experience of Israel, the USA, Great Britain and other countries proves that even in the places where great funds are allocated on the fight against terrorism, the feedback becomes greater when people closely cooperate with the power structures.
