MOSCOW, March 30. /TASS/. Moscow police have detained 18 suspected recruiters of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization, a police source told TASS on Wednesday.
The detainees allegedly recruited people to join the IS and forged documents, including work permits and driving licenses, the source said.
"A total of 18 people are being questioned now," the source said. "According to the preliminary data, some of the detainees were staying in Russia illegally."
"The police are checking two rented apartments, where the arrests were made, and looking for accomplices," it said.
On February 18, Russia’s Federal Security Service said it curbed the activity of an international criminal group that forged documents for Russians who went to fight for the Islamic State.
Fourteen suspected members of the group were caught red-handed in an operation in the Moscow region. Police seized a lot of fake extremist books, documents, prints, stamps, and equipment used to make them.
