Russia’s National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAC) on Sunday said its agents had neutralised a militant near the city of Ufa, who planned to carry out a terror attack.

“The criminal was neutralised in an exchange of fire. A gun and a ready-for-use improvised explosive device were found at the scene of the shootout. According to reports, the neutralised bandit intended to carry out a terrorist attack”, the NAC said.
There were no victims in the incident, it added.

According to the NAC, the officers attempted to stop a car with the armed bandit on a highway in the suburbs of Ufa on Saturday at about 14:00 GMT. When demanded to lay down his arms and surrender to the authorities, the bandit opened fire.

On 20 March, the Russian Federal Security Service said it had stopped a secret cell of the Daesh* terrorist group that had collected some $26,000 for Daesh militants.

The special operation was carried out jointly with the financial watchdog in Crimea, Komi, and Rostov region.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
