Russian President Vladimir Putin telephoned U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday to thank him for the tip-off, which the Kremlin said helped prevent a militant bomb attack on a cathedral in the Russian city, as well as other sites.
The Kremlin said the Central Intelligence Agency provided Russia with key information about a plot to bomb Kazan Cathedral and other places in St. Petersburg, allowing Russian police to arrest a group of suspects in raids on Friday.
Putin added that his country will also alert the USA if it ever got hold of information regarding a planned terror attack on United States soil. The two leaders agreed that this operation against terrorism "serves as an example of the positive things that can occur when our countries work together". The reports showed the FSB detaining a suspect, who was later shown confessing that he was told by the Islamic State to prepare homemade bombs rigged with shrapnel.
