5) The Ryazan Test:

An apparent bomb was found on September 22rd, 1999 in an apartment building on New Settler's Street in Ryazan, Russia. Although the police initially reported that it was the work of Chechen terrorists, and preliminary police lab tests showed the presence of explosives in the device that were similar to the five other bombs blamed on Chechen terrorists, the Ryazan police found that the car used in planting the device traced back to the the Russian Intelligence Service, FSB. Nikolai Patrushev, the head of the FSB, then announced that the incident in Ryazan had been nothing more than a "training exercise" staged by the FSB to test local vigilance and the bomb contained only harmless sugar. But the chemical analysis was never released.
