A spokesman for the prosecutor's office confirmed to Sputnik that the detainee is a Russian citizen.
Yusup B., 29-year-old alleged supporter of Daesh was arrested on Thursday in Amsterdam. The Russian citizen is suspected of transferring money to alleged accomplices in Syria, the spokesman for the Berlin Attorney General, Martin Steltner, said. The money supposedly financed arms supplies and special education for militants.
However, investigators managed to find out his whereabouts and the suspect was detained when entering Europe from Latin America at the Amsterdam airport.
