Denial about the Ryazan incident
On 24 September, FSB director Nikolai Patrushev announced that the Ryazan Incident bomb had no explosive, but was merely sugar. He claimed that it was carried out as a terror drill to test responses after the earlier blasts.
The Ryazan FSB "reacted with fury" and issued a statement saying:
This announcement came as a surprise to us and appeared at the moment when the ...FSB had identified the places of residence in Ryazan of those involved in planting the explosive device and was prepared to detain them.
