On Tuesday, the Moscow Youth Palace hosted a round-table discussion entitled, Russia's Future Without Terrorism. Taking part in the debate are officials from the Russian State Duma, the Moscow City Duma, the Federal Security Service, the ministries of education and emergency situations, the Moscow Committee on Youth and Family Affairs, and other state bodies and security services. Although many different social problems were brought up, the discussion focused mostly on Russian youth as "something we have to protect against terrorism." As one of the speakers said, it is mainly youth, which is "prone to negative influences," that joins terrorist groups, which means "educational work among young people" has to be one of the major components of the drive to combat terrorism. Since the conclusion was unanimous, participants in the discussion agreed to join their efforts to protect youth against "being drawn into terrorist and extremist organisations."
