MOSCOW, April 7 (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin told the FSB security service on Monday to be on the alert against militant attacks and said Russia must not let non-governmental organisations be used for "destructive" purposes "as in Ukraine".

Putin's remarks, quoted by Interfax news agency, made clear the FSB must not let its guard down following the Sochi Winter Olympics and signalled concern about the danger of internal dissent being fuelled by the West following events in Ukraine.
