Doku Umarov, head of the international terrorist organization Imarat Kavkaz, has been linked to the Georgian intelligence, Russia’s anti-terror committee said on Thursday.
The committee announced Russian special services today foiled terrorists’ plans to carry out a series of attacks in Sochi, the host of the upcoming winter Olympics.
“The Imarat Kavkaz head, Umarov, has been maintaining close ties with Georgian intelligence agencies and coordinated deliveries of explosives to Sochi, where they were to be kept in special caches,” the anti-terror committee said.
During a special operation in Abkhazia on May 4-5, Russian special services discovered ten caches containing arms, explosives, ammo and other illegal weapons, including three portable anti-aircraft missile complexes, Igla and Strela, two anti-tank guided missiles with launchers, a mortar with 36 shells, a flamethrower, 29 grenade launchers, 12 IEDs and topographic maps, among others.
