He recalled that a similar discussion on security issues in the district took about a year ago in the Stavropol.
Since that time, the situation is "substantially improved," he said.
"Over the last 10 months in the county registered 64,000 crimes.

Once again I draw this to the attention of the law enforcement authorities: no faith in these statistics, it is often nonsense, "- said Medvedev.
Dmitry Medvedev invited participants to dive deeper into the problem, assess what assistance is the leaders of the security forces of the heads of actors and local governments, as well as to analyze the level of funding for individual regional programs for law enforcement focus. The meeting was closed to the press.

"Thanks to the coordinated and professional actions of security forces, we were able to avoid many tragedies, but the terrorist threat remains high. We must give serious measures to toughen these thugs, and in this respect are impressed by a resolute spirit Head of State", - said Valeriy Gajewski. "We need a complete system for monitoring the ethnic situation, impartial study of the potential sources of tension: the issues of ownership, land tenure, unemployment, and" protection racket "and other things" - he said.
