DUBAI: The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, FSB, said they arrested a national planning a terrorist attack in Kaliningrad, Russian news agency Interfax reported.

The FSB found an improvised explosive device and instructions on how to build it - as well as materials for creating more explosives at his house, Interfax said.
They also found “materials with offensive content against Russian authorities.”
