A 36-year-old resident of Simferopol received 10 years in prison for trying to organize a terrorist attack in Crimea
The Southern Military District Court sentenced a Simferopol resident to 10 years in a strict regime colony who planned a terrorist attack on a railway in Crimea. According to the Federal Security Service of the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, the 36-year-old attacker was preparing to undermine the railway lines in the Dzhankoy district «in order to intimidate the population of Russia, create a danger of loss of life and influence the decision-making by the authorities of the Russian Federation.» At his place of residence, two improvised explosive devices, two electric detonators, a scheme for laying IEDs and extremist literature were seized.
A Simferopol terrorist was detained in April last year.
During the investigation, it was also established that the man posted materials on social networks containing calls for terrorist attacks against representatives of the Russian state authorities and for the murder of Russians.
The Southern Military District Court found the attacker guilty and sentenced him to 10 years in prison in a strict regime colony with a fine of 220,000 rubles and a ban on administering Internet sites for 2.5 years.
