The Russian government has information that the detainees in Turkey are Russian citizens who are involved in international terrorist groups, reports RIA “Novosti” with reference to an informed source from the responsible office.

As it turned out, two of the alleged terrorists, a few years ago, went from Russia to study in the Middle East. The source also said that one of the detained citizens of the Russian Federation had been declared on the Russian and International wanted list.

Earlier, Turkish media reported that they had detained three Russians in Istanbul on suspicion of having links with the terrorist group “Islamic State”.
