Trump Putin call: Central Intelligence Agency helped stop Russian Federation terror attack

According to Russian media, Putin also reassured Trump that Russia's intelligence service would transmit any information pertaining to the attacks on the United States to the White House, as it had done in the past.

Russian President Vladimir Putin thanked his United States counterpart Donald Trump on Sunday for the CIA's help in thwarting a planned attack in Saint Petersburg, the second time in a week that the leaders have exchanged praise.

The Russian leader reassured the USA president that "Russian security services, should they have information about possible terrorist threats to the United States and its citizens, will swiftly and unconditionally share it with the U.S. colleagues via partner channels", the press service stressed.

The White House said the foiled attack could have killed "large numbers of people".

"Both leaders agreed that this serves as an example of the positive things that can occur when our countries work together", the readout said.

The instructions even included alternative phrases in some instances. Many CDC employees reportedly aren't happy about the changes.

According to Russia's FSB security service, the information from the Central Intelligence Agency led to the arrest of seven people and the seizure of a significant amount of explosives and weapons. "We would like to have Russia's help", he told reporters outside the White House.

FSB chief Alexander Bortnikov said on Tuesday the country was monitoring the possible return of jihadists from Syria, a threat which has increased since Moscow's military intervention in the country.

On Thursday, it was Trump who called Putin, thanking the Russian president for his praise of Trump's handling of the US economy.

Russian Federation has suffered several attacks this year, including a bombing on the Saint Petersburg metro in April that left 14 people dead. Putin asked Trump to convey thanks to the CIS director and intelligence officers who had obtained this information. While Trump and Putin are believed to get along well, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and an intelligence committee set up by the House of Representatives continue to investigate allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign team and Kremlin officials in the run-up to last year's U.S. presidential election.
