    Russia has proof that some states and influential foreign companies "cooperate with terrorists," Russian Security Council's Head Nikolai Patrushev said.

    "We continue obtaining new proof of several states' and influential foreign and even transnational companies' cooperation with terrorists. We are talking about purchases of oil and other raw material from terrorists, as well as about paying them for obtaining permits for production and transportation of goods in territories under their control," Patrushev said in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper.

    He also said that "putting an end to this practice should be the goal of all countries which combat terrorism without an exception."

    Patrushev also commented on Russia's cooperation with other countries in the fight against terrorism.

    "First of all we managed to intensify the work in the framework of the United Nations Security Council. Russia contributed to the adoption of resolutions aimed at fighting against Daesh and other terrorist organizations, as well as against financing terrorism," he said.

    Russia is going to continue work on eliminating the terrorist threat coming from the territory of Iraq and Syria, Patrushev said.

    "We will strive for continuation of joint work aimed at elimination of the terrorist threat coming from the Syrian and Iraqi territory, and ensuring close coordination of efforts between the states interested in stabilization of the situation in the Middle East."

      Keep gathering and gathering on no end. Russian military in the future should NOT be only about fight. But at field forensics too. Including internet and many other sciences and disciplines

      If in fact Russia has the "proof" against nations and transnational corporations it should be made public so that it can be reviewed and tested for validity in the public domain. Russia's secret services have no more right to claim proof without evidence than the CIA does. If you have the proof show it to the public, everyone is sick of this stupid game of talk talk and claim without proof.
