    Bomber blows up at FSB office

    A man entered an FSB intelligence office with a homemade explosive device, which exploded in his own hands.

    He was killed instantly, and it is believed three FSB employees were injured in the blast.


    Before the incident, messages on messaging app Telegram from an anarchist warned of an attack on the FSB.


    The user accused the FSB of fabricating cases and torturing people.


    It is not known if the messages were written by the attacker.


    Regional governor Igor Orlov said the blast went off near the entrance of the building.


    He added officials are working to determine the type of explosive used by the terrorist.


    All state and security buildings in the area have been placed on high alert.


    A National anti-terrorist spokesman told TASS: "According to preliminary information, the individual entered the building and took an unidentified object out of a bag, which exploded in his hands after some time, as a result of which he suffered injuries that led to [his] death."

    I assume FSB refers to:

    The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB; Russian: Федеральная служба безопасности Российской Федерации (ФСБ), tr. Federal'naya sluzhba bezopasnosti Rossiyskoy Federatsii, IPA: [fʲɪdʲɪˈralʲnəjə ˈsluʐbə bʲɪzɐˈpasnəstʲɪ rɐˈsʲijskəj fʲɪdʲɪˈratsɨjɪ]) is the principal security agency of Russia.

    I would have thought "FSB Intelligence Office" might be a bit of a fucking clue.

    The terrorist attack on a Federal Security Service branch in Arkhangelsk: what we know, so far

    There was an explosion at the Federal Security Service (FSB) building in Arkhangelsk on the morning of October 31. According to Russia’s National Anti-Terrorism Committee, the bomb detonated inside the building’s entrance at 8:52 a.m. A man entered the building removed an unidentified object from his bag, and sometime later the object exploded, killing the perpetrator and inflicting injuries of varying severity on three FSB officers.


    The strength and composition of the bomb are still unknown. Photos from the blast site show that the building’s lobby sustained serious damage (the explosion ripped paneling off the wall and splattered blood).


    The suspect’s identity has been established. Police say the bomber was a local 17-year-old, though they haven’t released his name to the public. The website Znak.com reported that the young man studied at a nearby polytechnic school, and published a photograph of his student identification card. The website also published a still from surveillance camera footage, showing the bomber enter the FSB building in Arkhangelsk.


    Federal investigators have opened two criminal cases: a terrorism case and an illegal ammunition storage case. The Investigative Committee’s central office will handle both cases. The agency’s head, Alexander Bastrykin, has ordered investigators to determine the bomber’s motives, relationships, circle of friends, and family environment.


    A few minutes before the bombing, a warning appeared in a local anarchist chat community. At 8:48 a.m., in the public Telegram chat channel Rech Buntovshchika (“Rebel Talk”), a user named “Valeryan Panov” claimed responsibility for a future terrorist attack. Declaring that “the reasons should be perfectly obvious to you,” the Telegram user noted that the FSB “fabricates [criminal] cases and tortures people.”
