Central Intelligence Agency helped Russian Federation halt terrorist attack

18 December 2017

Trump told the Russian president that U.S. intelligence was pleased to assist in preventing a terror attack in St. Petersburg.

Today (Sunday), Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke with US President Donald Trump and thanked him for information provided by the Central Intelligence Agency that prevented a terror attack in Russia.

The Kremlin said it led Russia's top domestic security agency to a group of suspects that planned to bomb St. Petersburg's Kazan Cathedral and other crowded sites this weekend.

The Federal Security Service said Friday that seven members of a terror cell had been detained for their involvement in the plot, and that "a significant amount of explosives", weapons and "extremist literature" were confiscated.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders affirmed in a tweet Sunday that the pioneers had talked and said the White House was getting ready to discharge a readout of the call.

He also added: "I want everyone in Egypt to follow my way". "I have to thank everyone, my team-mates, the people I work with". He carried AS Roma (2nd in Italian Serie A), in the first half of the year, scoring 15 goals and delivering 11 assists.

That has been complicated by US allegations - denied by Russian Federation - that the Kremlin meddled in last year's USA presidential election to help Trump win. The suspect was later shown confessing that he was told to make homemade bombs filled with shrapnel. "We would love to have his help on North Korea".

The Kremlin said Putin told Trump to pass along his gratitude to the CIA and the American intelligence agents who received the information, according to the Washington Post.

The White House said that the two leaders agreed in Sunday's phone call that the co-operation was "an example of the positive things that can occur when our countries work together".

He then called CIA Director Mike Pompeo to "congratulate him, his very talented people, and the entire intelligence community on a job well done!" the statement added.

Mr Putin has said he and President Trump are on first name terms, which is "how relations should be between people like us". "There is every reason to believe that we will be able to at least partially re-establish the level of cooperation that we need".
