The Kremlin said Sunday that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency provided Russian authorities with information that thwarted a series of Islamic State bombings planned in St. Petersburg.
The Kremlin said Russian President Vladimir Putin called President Donald Trump to thank him for the CIA information.
Russia said the information was significant enough for its FSB security service to track down suspects who were planning suicide bomb attacks on Saturday on the two-century-old Kazan Cathedral and other sites.
Moscow said Putin asked the U.S. leader to express his gratitude to the CIA and that Russia would turn over information it learned about possible terrorist attacks in the U.S., as it says it has in the past.
Sunday’s call between the two leaders was their second in four days.
