According to the FSB, Magomedov traveled to Ukraine at the beginning of this year to "discuss the issues of material support for the North Caucasian criminal underground with Daesh emissaries."

"They introduced him to the representatives of the Security Service of Ukraine and the 'Right Sector.' Magomedov was tasked by the Ukrainian intelligence services with eliminating a commander of one of the units of the DPR armed forces residing in the Smolensk region," the press release read.

Magomedov was detained when plotting the murder. The Russian security services seized an improvised explosive device equivalent to 1.5 kilograms of TNT, as well as a pistol with a silencer and ammunition.

"Besides, the Ukrainian intelligence services use Daesh members eliminate the leaders of the DPR and the LPR [self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic]," the FSB stressed.
