KGB chief: Terrorist act prevented during Ice Hockey World Championship

KGB chief Valery Vakulchyk mentioned the terrorist act at a meeting of the heads of CIS security agencies and special services. “Information about a terrorist act prepared for the Ice Hockey World Championship in Minsk was received in Poland,” he said.

"We and our Russian colleagues addressed our requests to the Polish special services,” Interfax-West quotes Vakulchyk. “They revealed the person who had left the phone message within a day.  He was in the EU and we settled the situation quite quickly.”

It was not the only incident during the hockey championship, the KGB chief noted. However, the security system worked well. 

The Ice Hockey World Championship was held in our country on May 9-25.
