Last Monday, the FSB said it detained had seven alleged IS members in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg who supposedly had prepared to carry out "high-profile terrorist attacks" in Moscow, St. Petersburg and the Sverdlovsk region.
A district court in Yekaterinburg arrested the suspects for two months.

During the searches in the suspects’ houses, a laboratory for manufacturing explosive devices was uncovered. The officers reportedly found electric detonators, firearms, grenades, bomb components and extremist literature.
According to the Federal Security Service, the suspects planned to later leave for Syria to join combat actions as part of the IS group.
