Russian federal agents say they've shut down several terrorist cells lead by the exiled nationalist politician Vyacheslav Maltsev
The Russian Federal Security Service says it’s shut down a “secret cell” of Russian nationalist Vyacheslav Maltsev’s supporters, who allegedly planned to set fire to government administrative buildings in Moscow and attack police officers on November 4 and 5, during national Unity Day celebrations.
The group’s goal, federal agents say, was to provoke mass riots. Police seized 15 bottles filled with incendiary compounds and detained an unspecified number of people. The Federal Security Service says it plans to charge them with plotting terrorism.
