    The global community must consolidate efforts to counter terrorism actions, the head of Russia’s General Staff said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The global community must consolidate efforts to destroy sources of financial and material support for terrorism, the head of Russia’s General Staff said Wednesday.

    “The terrorist acts in Paris and Brussels were perceived in Russia with indignation and empathy for the people of France and Belgium. The consolidation of efforts is needed in the fight against terrorism, first and foremost in destroying the sources of financing and material support,” Gen. Valery Gerasimov said during a meeting with his Austrian colleague Gen. Othmar Commenda in Moscow.
