    A court in the Russian peninsula of Crimea arrested a suspect in the foiled terrorist plot to two months, a source present at the closed-door session told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

    SIMFEROPOL (Sputnik) – Yevgeny Panov, a native of Ukraine’s Zaporizhia Region born in 1977, was detained on suspicion of plotting a terrorist attack in Crimea late last week, the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) said Wednesday.

    "The court arrested Panov for two months," the source at the Kievskiy district court of Simferopol said, relaying judge Tatyana Rube's announcement.

    The Ukrainian National Police opened a case into Panov's abduction during the raid.  A security service source disputed that claim, saying Panov entered Crimea through a checkpoint.
