According to remarks released by the Kremlin, the Russian president said "The elimination of terrorists, even at the level of the recent destruction of bin Laden, has a direct relation on the level of security on the territory of our state."

Russia’s president has told the country’s top security officials to beef up the security at Russia’s foreign missions in the wake of the killing of Osama bin Laden.

Dmitry Medvedev made the call Wednesday at a meeting with the heads of the country’s Security Council, Interior Ministry and intelligence agencies.

Russia maintains that al—Qaida finances insurgents in the Caucasus and sends representatives to the region where country’s security forces face near—daily attacks from insurgents.

According to remarks released by the Kremlin, the Russian president said “The elimination of terrorists, even at the level of the recent destruction of bin Laden, has a direct relation on the level of security on the territory of our state.”
