MOSCOW, Russia (CNN) -- Russian special forces fighting in Chechnya found instructions for making poisons, including ricin, in the possession of a fighter they killed, Russian presidential aide Sergei Yaztrzhembsky said Monday.

Interfax news agency, quoting an unnamed military source, said the fighter was part of a group killed by special forces last week.

British authorities found traces of the toxin ricin, for which there is no antidote, in a raid on a London apartment last week. A group arrested as terrorism suspects in that raid are accused of training in Afghanistan, Georgia's Pankisi Gorge and Chechnya.

Other countries working with Russia against terrorism and the spread of weapons of mass destruction have been informed of the Chechen incident, according to Yaztrzhembsky's office. Russia has frequently insisted that some Chechen militants have connections to international terrorist groups.
