As learned from a source in the Federal Security
Service [FSB], a terrorist act was averted in the largest
men’s monastery of the Russian Orthodox Church with
several centuries of history—the Trinity-St. Sergius
Lavra.

According to sources, on June 14 in several cafes in the
Pushkin region of Podmoskovye were found homemade
explosive devices and schemes and photos of the Lavra.

“Makeshift explosive devices were found in three
cafes” says the source. “One of them is
located in the western part of the city of Pushkino. It
belongs to an Azerbaijani and some Dagestanis. According
to our information, weapons were already found in this
café a couple of years ago.”

Next to the homemade bomb was material confirming that
terrorists had prepared a bomb for the Trinity-St. Sergius
Lavra.

Investigative activity is currently underway, with no
information on the detainees as of yet.
