Russia’s FSB security agency has eliminated a Muslim terrorist in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, who plotted a high-profile terror attack during the 2018 presidential election.
An FSB Special Forces team has foiled “the activities of an ISIS member who planned a terrorist attack in Nizhny Novgorod,” the agency said in a statement on Thursday.
“According to the intelligence collected, the terrorist – a citizen of a neighboring state – was preparing the attack on the day of [the] Russian presidential election,” it added.
The terrorist opened fire at the FSB team trying to apprehend him but was shot and eliminated, according to law enforcement.
A powerful improvised explosive device, components for making several more explosive devices, as well as firearms and ammunition had been found at the terrorist’s location.
The 2018 Russian presidential election is scheduled to take place on March 18. The incumbent president, Vladimir Putin, and a number of politicians have already announced their bids.
