Moscow has evidence that Daesh is plotting terrorist attacks in Russia and other parts of the world.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — There is evidence that Daesh jihadist group leaders are plotting terrorist acts in Russia, Federal Security Service (FSB) director Alexander Bortnikov said at a National Antiterrorism Committee session Tuesday.

"At present, a large amount of operational information is coming out indicating that leaders of terrorist groups operating in the Middle East as part of the so-called Islamic State [Daesh] are intent on carrying out terrorist attacks in various regions of the world, including in Russia," Bortnikov said.
