Video: House of Representatives passes changes to anti-terrorism laws

The House of Representatives on Wednesday gave first-reading approval to a bill of amendments to laws governing the fight against terrorism.
While introducing the bill to the lower parliamentary chamber, Ihar Syarheyenka, first deputy head of the Committee for State Security (KGB), said that it would criminalize the financing of terrorists' travel to training camps.
The bill defines the term "critical infrastructure facility" as a facility the incapacity of which resulting from a terrorist attack may destabilize public order, lead to loss of life, harm human health, damage the environment, and cause damage to property.
The bill stipulates that government agencies should implement the UN Security Council's resolutions targeting entities and persons linked to terrorism. The KGB would be allowed to exchange information with the UN Security Council and propose that entities and persons be added to or removed from its sanctions lists.
