#StPetersburg supermarket bombing was terrorism, says Putin

The Federal Security Service (FSB) detained on Saturday an individual suspected of organizing and conducting a bombing that injured 13 people in Russia's second largest city.

Russian investigators immediately began to work with the suspect, who is now being interrogated, according to a separate statement by the Investigative Committee.

The suspect told investigators he had been motivated by "hatred toward the organizers and participants" of mindset training sessions he used to attend, the committee said without providing further detail. Eight people remain in hospital.

The extremist group Islamic State (IS) had claimed responsibility for the bombing through its Amaq news agency on December 29. It was carried out by a Russian citizen born in Kyrgyzstan.

Putin emphasized that Russia's two-year military campaign in Syria helped avert more terror attacks by eliminating militants who threatened Russian Federation.

Firefighters and police officers work at the site of a blast in a supermarket in Saint Petersburg on December 27, 2017.

Putin's 2015 decision to begin a military intervention in Syria's conflict on the side of President Bashar al-Assad has made Russian Federation a priority target for jihadist groups.

Also earlier this month, Putin telephoned U.S. President Donald Trump to thank him for what the Kremlin described as a Central Intelligence Agency tip that prevented more bombings in St. Petersburg, Putin's hometown.

The power of the unidentified explosive was equivalent to 200 grams of TNT, officials said.
