Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) announced on Friday that it had prevented the activities of Daesh (ISIS) terrorist group's supporters in St. Petersburg, who planned to carry out a terrorist attack later in December, Sputnik reports.
According to the Kremlin, Russian President Vladimir Putin has thanked US President Donald Trump during a phone conversation for the intelligence data provided by the CIA that helped detain terrorists who had been plotting a terrorist attack in Saint Petersburg.
While expressing the Kremlin's gratitude to the CIA director and the agency's employees, Putin has ensured his counterpart that Russian special services would "certainly and immediately" share intelligence information with their US colleagues on the terrorist threat in the country "as it had always been done before."
The information shared by the CIA helped "track, find and detain a group of terrorists planning explosions in the Kazan Cathedral of Saint Petersburg, as well as other public places" in the home city of Putin.
