The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) has detained two ISIS members who were planning to carry out attacks in Moscow Region on September 1, the FSB said on Thursday.
According to the FSB, the terrorists were plotting to attack crowded places on Knowledge Day, the beginning of the school year in Russia.
The FSB “detected and suppressed the criminal activity of two immigrants from the Central Asian region, who were plotting to carry out terrorist attack in places of mass gathering on 1 September this year.”
Earlier one of the terrorists published a video in which he addressed ISIS.
“In the address he gave the so-called ‘oath of loyalty to terrorists.’ After that, he planned attacks on civilians with non-firearm weapons,” the FSB said.
