Russian President Vladimir Putin said that individuals from 40 countries, including from member states of the G20, are funding the terrorist groups in Syria.
Ata press conference upon participation in the G20 summit in Antalya on Monday, Putin said “I provided examples related to our data on the financing of Islamic State (ISIS) units by natural persons in various countries. The financing comes from 40 countries, as we established, including some G20 members.”
“This topic (the war on the terror) was crucial. Especially after the Paris tragedy, we all understand that the means of financing terrorism should be severed,” the Russian president said.
