ST.PETERSBURG, August 17. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Security Service is carrying out an operation in St. Petersburg to detain members of illegal armed gangs active in the North Caucasus, the press service of the FSB’s department in the city told TASS on Wednesday.
An effort is underway in an apartment block in the Kirovsky district of Russia’s second-largest city "to detain individuals who are on a federal wanted list and are accused of participation in illegal armed gangs on the territory of the North Caucasus region," a spokesman said.
