    Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) on Friday demanded the arrest of suspects in the preparation of terrorist attacks in the Russian capital, a Moscow court said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The FSB said that terrorist attacks were being prepared by the suspects under the direct instruction of a Daesh terrorist group's emissary, who was in Turkey and had been put by the Tajik authorities on an international wanted list.

    "Four materials on suspects in a crime under Article 205 of the Russian Criminal Code have been received," Meshchansky Court spokeswoman Yulia Bocharova said.

    According to the FSB, a subversive and terrorist group, detained the day before, consisted of Tajik citizens and one resident of Moldova. According to security agencies, the suspects were preparing a series of high-profile terrorist attacks.
