Russia foiled "major terrorist attacks" on World War Two victory celebrations last month in Moscow and newly annexed Crimea, the FSB security service said Tuesday.Details of the alleged plots could not be verified but the FSB's statements, suggesting patriotic Russian symbols were targeted, could be intended to fuel nationalist sentiment during the Ukraine crisis and rally support for President Vladimir Putin.Itar-Tass news agency quoted the FSB as saying it was investigating a number of Russian citizens suspected of preparing an attack on May 9, the Victory Day holiday, using a home-made bomb packed with bolts, screws and nails.At the end of last year, at least 34 people were killed in two bombings in the southern city of Volgograd, weeks before Russia hosted the Winter Olympics.
