SODOM & GOMORRAH: The Russian government claims to have stopped a terrorist plot, in an ongoing demonstration of “European peace”.
Within just a week of US Secretary of Defense Ash Carter accusing Russia of disrupting the so-called peaceful order of Europe, the government in Moscow claims to have identified a plot to set off more bombs in Europe. The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) alleges that terrorists were planning on carrying out several attacks near Moscow at the beginning of May. Authorities say that members of groups active in Turkey and Syria were planning the attack near major festivities on Labour Day and Orthodox Christianity’s Easter holiday.
Those arrested are “progressing toward confession” say FSB officials, no doubt with someone twirling a mustache menacingly.
Russia has been actively involved in backing the Syrian government in what it claims are efforts to stop such terrorist groups. Additionally, Russia’s relationship with Turkey has been strained in recent months with both countries preparing for potential conflict.
