Recently detained militants linked to Moscow terror attack - FSB | 1 April 2024 | A group of four militants captured on Sunday morning in Russia's Dagestan had a role in financing and providing equipment for the Crocus City Hall terrorist attack earlier this month, the FSB stated on Monday. The short statement described the outfit as a terrorist cell composed of foreign nationals, who were allegedly planning a mass-casualty attack in the southern city of Kaspiysk using automatic firearms and explosives. The group planned to escape Russia after carrying out the plot, the security service added. The statement referred to "direct involvement" in the provision of finance and "means for terror" to the perpetrators of the March 22 massacre outside Moscow. The four alleged gunmen, whose attack at the concert venue claimed over 140 lives, were detained the next day, while purportedly trying to reach the Russia-Ukraine border.
