Expert gave assessment of counter-terrorist operation in Tyumen
FSB "made a lot of noise," said the expert.
Vice-President of the Association of Veterans of the Special Services "Berkut" Valery Malevanny gave his assessment of the counter-terrorist operation in Tyumen. He believes that the secret services at the last moment learned about the impending terrorist attack. He came to this conclusion due to the fact that the operation itself took place with a “big noise”.
Malevanny is confident that after the defeat of the Islamic state* in Syria, jihadists went to Europe and Russia. On the territory of our country, the dormant parts of terrorist group, also called “moles,” got active.
Now the FSB is actively eliminating them. But usually these operations are quiet. In Tyumen, the local residents were struck by the amount of equipment and security forces on the street.
“The quieter Chekists work, the higher the quality and professionalism of their work is,” the expert believes.
The press service of the FSB Directorate has not yet given its comment.
On the night to April 13, police cars, armored personnel carriers and other military vehicles filled one of the streets of the city. Siloviki liquidated two terrorists who were preparing an explosion in the city.

General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
