Putin: Trump's call saved Russian Federation from deadly terror attacks this weekend

Putin: Trump's call saved Russian Federation from deadly terror attacks this weekend

This is the second time in less than a week that two of the world's most powerful leaders have exchanged messages of praise.

Russian President Vladimir Putin thanked his United States counterpart Donald Trump on Sunday for the CIA's help in thwarting a planned attack in Saint Petersburg, the second time in a week that the leaders have exchanged praise.

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.

Putin said Russian Federation would alert USA authorities if it received information about any attack being planned on the United States, the Kremlin said.

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.

Vladimir Putin phoned Donald Trump to thank him for the tip-off, the Kremlin said.

Ukraine again arrests Mikheil Saakashvili, ex-president of Georgia
Poroshenko rewarded Saakashvili for his efforts by appointing him governor of the important Black Sea region of Odessa in 2015. According to her, Lithuania also supports the requirement to create an anti-corruption court in Ukraine.

The Kremlin said the Russian President asked his USA counterpart to convey his gratitude to the Central Intelligence Agency. The reports showed the FSB detaining a suspect, who was later shown confessing that he was told by the Islamic State to prepare homemade bombs rigged with shrapnel.

Returning militants from Syria pose a real threat to Russian Federation, the head of the FSB was quoted as saying on Tuesday. "We would like to have Russia's help", he told reporters outside the White House.

Security services had already prevented 18 terrorist attacks in 2017, Alexander Bortnikov said in comments reported by Itar-Tass news agency. "President Trump then called Director Pompeo to congratulate him, his very talented people, and the entire intelligence community on a job well done!" the statement read.

At his annual press conference this week, Putin said allegations of Russian interference in last year's United States election had been "made up by people who are opposed to Trump so as to delegitimize his work".

The White House seized on the foiled plot in St. Petersburg as a sign of what Moscow and Washington could do if they cooperate. On Thursday, Putin and Trump discussed the crisis in North Korea.
