“Representatives of the Ministry of State Defense of the DPR stopped the activity of the pseudo-religious organization of Islamists on the territory of the republic. The leadership of the terrorist organization propagated the ideology of the terrorist organization Al-Ikhwan Al-Muslimin * (Muslim Brothers *),” Russian press services carried today.

Security services of the DPR found that the Islamist cell was based in the Kalininsky district of Donetsk at 2 Berestovskaya Street. Islamists distributed radical literature among the residents of the republic.

The detained Islamists kept in touch with the directors from the Muslim Brotherhood through the extremist organizations Alraid and Ummah, created earlier in Ukraine.

“During a special operation in the Kalininsky district, a search was conducted in the building of the terrorist organization. During the search, extremist materials were found and seized – books by Sayid bin Ali bin Vakhf al-Kahtani “The Fortress of a Muslim” and materials of the Ukrainian organization “Alraid.” Also, materials containing signs of inciting hatred and enmity on religious grounds were seized,” the Ministry of National Defense of the DPR noted.
