    UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) – The UN Security Council is continuing consultations of the draft resolution on fighting the ideology of terrorism, Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said.

    "We are continuing consultations on our document in the Security Council … We are sure that the Security Council must take measures to counter the propaganda of terrorism disseminated worldwide. The ongoing rise of radicalization is a result of development of modern technologies. Young people are most vulnerable [to radicalization]," Churkin said on Monday.

    He explained that the draft resolution focused on fighting propaganda of terrorism including actions that can be regarded as incitement of terrorism as well as on use of Internet and social networks.

    The Russian draft resolution was introduced on October 4.
