Russia's FSB detains four members of Daesh 'sleeper cell' from Syria

FSB prevents string of ‘high-profile’ Moscow terrorist attacks

Russia's main intelligence agency says it has detained four men linked to the ISIS group and are suspected of plotting terror attacks in Moscow.

"The terrorists' activities have been coordinated through the Telegram app", said a statement issued by the service.

The terrorists planned to conduct terrorist acts in Moscow.


The security services clarified that searches and detentions were also held in Novy Urengoy, from where the group of IS's adherers came to Moscow.

While the arrest took place in March, the FSB and police detained 20 terrorist accomplices in a joint raid in Noviy Urengoy on Wednesday.

Since April 16, communications providers, taking orders from Roskomnadzor, have started blocking the IP addresses used by Telegram. It noted that the terrorists had communicated through Telegram messenger, which was recently blocked in Russian Federation.
