MOSCOW, May 10 (Itar-Tass) — During the joint special operation the Federal Security Service (FSB) and the Abkhazian State Security Service have found the caches with explosives and air defence missile systems, which a gang was masterminding to bring to Sochi during the preparations for the Winter Olympics, a spokesman for the information centre of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
