MINSK, 13 October (BelTA) – The threats faced by the CIS are constantly changing. Thus, the countries have to look for unconventional solutions in the field of economic security in the context of the unilateral sanctions imposed by the West, Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev said at the 17th session of the Council of Heads of the CIS Security and Intelligence Agencies, TASS has learned.
The CIS states are continuously developing measures to counter international terrorism, extremism, organized crime, drug trafficking and color revolutions, he said.
"But the threats are constantly changing. The pandemic has forced us to take a new look at biosecurity. Unilateral sanctions make us look for unconventional solutions in the field of economic security," Nikolai Patrushev said.
Global problems are complicated by the attempts of Western countries to impose ideological confrontation, alien ideals and values on others, Nikolai Patrushev noted. By doing so, "Western countries and NATO are trying to solve their growing internal problems, in the face of which they are powerless."
