The Russian Federal Service of Security (FSB) released video on Thursday showing the elimination of a supposed member of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), who allegedly plotted a militant attack in Nizhny Novgorod on the day of the Russian presidential elections.

According to law enforcement, the suspect opened fire at the FSB team trying to apprehend him but was shot dead.
