MOSCOW, October 19. /TASS/. The Russian security service FSB arrested a train driver, who on social networks justified terrorism and who was preparing an explosion on a train and wanted to go to Syria to join the outlawed Islamic State (IS) terrorist organisation, the authority's press service said.
"On October 16, 2015, the service arrested A. Ferzaliyev, who on the VKontakte [social network] administered a terror-focused group," the press service said.
In that group’s discussions he placed "materials adjusting international organisations outlawed in the Russian Federation," the press service said.
As the security specialists presented proofs to the suspect, he told them about the plans to use a self-made explosive device in a train in the Krasnodar territory, for what, the press service said, the man used the Internet to communicate with a member of IS, fighting in Syria, to get instructions how to make a self-made explosive device.
After that act of terror he wanted to go to Syria to join IS there.
"Now, Ferzaliyev is under arrest, and investigation continues," the press service added.
