According to Bortnikov, extremists’ target is countries with weakened legitimate authorities. He also recalled the terrorists' desire to create so-called terrorist sleeper cells, which carry out spot attacks on the territories of states. Such terrorists have begun to use new types of encryption to communicate.

Bortnikov recalled the threat of double terrorist attacks - when, after the first bombing, terrorists wait for law enforcement officers to let their guard down and launch a second attack.
