The security services of the Russian Federation know that in the ranks of the IG there are units that prepare terrorist acts in the Russian Federation and European countries (...) This is a battalion consisting mainly of people from the North Caucasus, headed by Akhmed Chetaev, nicknamed One-armed.
The head of the information center of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee of the Russian Federation noted that the terrorists had been trained at the training bases of the IG terrorists in the Middle East.
Earlier it was reported that a whole network of terrorist training camps operated and continues to operate in Turkey. At the same time, the Turkish authorities continue to declare that they are allegedly fighting the so-called "Islamic states", and Russia allegedly only hinders such a struggle.
Representatives of the competent authorities of Russia previously provided information that about 7 thousands of immigrants from the southern regions of Russia, as well as from the republics of Central Asia, are fighting in the ranks of the militants in Syria.
