"The Russian Interior Ministry employees and the Russian Federal Security Service have found an arms depot and an object, which has all the characteristics of a self-made bomb, in a caf· in Sergiyev Posad near Moscow in a series of planned measures to fight illegal trade in arms. The arsenal’s owners have been established and detained," she said adding that operations designed to thwart illegal trade in arms were proceeding as previously planned.
