FSB thwarts drone attacks at 2018 World Cup in Russia

Russia’s Federal Security Service thwarted attempted drone attacks at the 2018 World Cup, head of FSB Alexander Bortnikov said.

Bortnikov said that his officers “took measures to detect and foil attempts by terrorists to use drones during the preparation and hosting of various major political and sports events, most of all during the soccer World Cup,” TASS reported.

In April, Russia said “extremists” and nationalist soccer hooligans had planned to attack World Cup events in the city of Samara but were foiled.
