“The Middle East remains one of the zones of high tension and instability in the contemporary world. We should, however, admit that 2019 was marked by an important event in the sphere of non-proliferation of WMD - the November UN Conference on the Establishment of a Middle East Zone Free of Nuclear Weapons and Other Weapons of Mass Destruction - which can be described as generally successful, at least much more successful than anticipated,” - write Vladimir Orlov and Natalia Artemenkova in their article «A WMD-Free Zone in the Middle East: The Road Toward It as Seen From Moscow», which was published in “International Affairs” in English.

This paper is devoted to analyzing external sources of financial support of terrorism in the North Caucasus – a region of the Russian Federation notorious for the military crackdown on the Chechen insurgency in the 1990s and the continuous terrorist activity which has led to hundreds of attacks against civilian and military targets throughout Russia. The author brings together scant pieces of information on the topic to present a study that could contribute to designing better law-enforcement and security practices intended to disrupt the financing of terrorism in Russia from abroad. This research is based on open sources and may serve as a framework for further investigation with the use of classified data by specialized agencies.
