Information provided by the CIA helped Russian security services foil an attack on St Petersburg's Kazan cathedral, the Kremlin says.
The attack was allegedly planned to take place on Saturday, officials say.
In a phone call, President Vladimir Putin thanked Donald Trump for the CIA's intervention, the Kremlin said.
Mr Putin told Mr Trump that Russia's special services would hand over information on terror threats to their US counterparts, it added.
Russia's FSB security service said in a statement on Friday that it had detained seven members of a cell of Islamic State supporters and seized a significant amount of explosives, weapons and extremist literature.
