Russian President Vladimir Putin has thanked US President Donald Trump during a phone conversation at the initiative of the Russian side for the intelligence data provided by the CIA that helped detain the terrorists.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has thanked his United States counterpart, Donald Trump, for Central Intelligence Agency information that helped arrest terrorist who had plotted bomb attacks in St. Petersburg's Kazan Cathedral and in other crowded places in Russia's second largest city, the Kremlin press service said on Sunday after a telephone conversation between the two leaders.

The group was preparing explosions targeting the cathedral and other public places in Russia's second city, the Kremlin statement said on Sunday.

The Russian Federal Security Service, or FSB, said Friday that seven suspected followers of the Islamic State group had been arrested on charges they planned to carry out terror attacks in St. Petersburg this weekend.

Putin added that his country will also alert the United States if it ever got hold of information regarding a planned terror attack on United States soil.

A White House statement said "terrorists" were captured prior to an attack "that could have killed large numbers of people". The two leaders agreed that this operation against terrorism "serves as an example of the positive things that can occur when our countries work together". Trump was additionally made a request to forward Putin's thankfulness to CIA Director Mike Pompeo and the knowledge authorities who got the data.

Mr Putin has said he and President Trump are on first name terms, which is "how relations should be between people like us".

Sunday's call was the second between Trump and Putin in three days.

A special counsel is investigating whether anyone from the Trump campaign colluded. "We would love to have his help on North Korea".

Returning militants from Syria pose a real threat to Russian Federation, the head of the FSB was quoted as saying on Tuesday.
