Putin Thanks Trump for Information That Helped Prevent Attacks in Russia

MOSCOW – Russian President Vladimir Putin telephoned US counterpart Donald Trump on Sunday to thank him for the information the CIA provided that allowed the Kremlin to prevent a terror attack in St. Petersburg.

The information “helped detain the terrorists who plotted to set off explosions at Kazan Cathedral in St. Petersburg and other public places in the city,” the Kremlin said in a statement.

Putin said the information enabled his government locate the suspected terrorists, who seemingly have links with the Islamic State terror organization.

“Vladimir Putin assured Donald Trump that in the event that Russian intelligence services receive information that concerns terrorist threats to the US and its citizens, they will promptly pass it on to their US colleagues via partner channels,” the statement added.

The Russian Federal Security Service announced earlier this week that it had arrested seven people suspected of planning attacks in St. Petersburg.

This group had planned an attack for Sunday on the Kazan Cathedral, located on Nevsky Prospect, the most crowded avenue in the city.

St. Petersburg in April witnessed the worst terrorist attack in its history, when a suicide bomber killed 14 people in the city’s metro.
