The facts of terrorism



The FSB, together with the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Investigative Committee, prevented a terrorist attack in Kislovodsk, Stavropol Krai of Russia. They detained a previously convicted Russian citizen who was preparing an attack on law enforcement officers using improvised explosive devices. The Russian Gazette correspondent was informed about this at the Public Relations Center of the FSB of Russia.

They also detained three accomplices of the alleged terrorist, who were part of the cell of the Islamic State foreign terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation.

According to the intelligence service, these citizens, whose identities are not disclosed in the interests of the investigation, are involved in organizing a channel for financing terrorists in Syria. The main task of their cell, assigned to them by the Islamic State emissaries, was to carry out terrorist attacks on the territory of the Stavropol Krai.

Judging by the operational video footage, among the detainees was a girlfriend of the terrorist, who said that her friend had made improvised grenades to blow up a police station. The footage of the interrogation of the terrorist himself, telling how he was preparing the terrorist attack, was also shown.

At his place of residence, components for production of improvised explosive device, explosives, damaging elements, as well as instructions for the manufacturing of explosives and explosive devices were seized.
