The leader of a National Socialist group was arrested after finding an improvised explosive device in his house.
Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) has announced the arrest of the leader of a "neo-Nazi" group who was plotting a "terror attack" using an improvised explosive device in Vladivostok, in Russia's far east.
"The leader of the regional neo-Nazi group, Pravyie Primorya, born in 2000, who was plotting a terrorist attack using an improvised explosive device, has been apprehended," the FSB reported, adding that the attempted attack was aimed at "influencing the government’s decisions regarding migration policy."
This is the second "terrorist attempt" by "neo-nazis" in this recent period that Russian intelligence was able to foil. The FSB also announced that it apprehended five "neo-nazis" suspected of plotting a "series of terrorist acts" against law enforcement in Russia's mostly Muslim-populated Bashkortostan region.
