PanARMENIAN.Net - The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) has killed 130 terrorists this year, including 21 leaders, and prevented six terrorist attacks, FSB Director Alexander Bortnikov said Tuesday, June 10, according to RIA Novosti.

“As a result of a series of preventive measures and military operations, 130 terrorists have been killed this year, including 21 leaders, discovered and eradicated more than 160 terrorist bases and arms caches,” Bortnikov said at the National Anti-Terrorism Committee meeting.
