"According to the criminals' plan, the civilians who wanted to visit the graves of their relatives at the cemetery in the Leninsky district of Grozny during the Kurban-Bairam holiday were to have become the victims of the terrorist act," the headquarters spokesman said.
According to him, a suspicious object was found by a local resident. The law enforcers, who arrived at the place, established that the find was a homemade explosive device made from a 122 mm mine.
"The bomb was taken away to a safe place and exploded. The names of the persons concerned in making and planting the mine are being established," the spokesman said.
