Two minors will be convicted of preparing a terrorist attack on Sakhalin

On Sakhalin, two underage teenagers were planning to commit a terrorist attack. The Main Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia completed the investigation of the case and brought charges against the suspects.

According to the press service of the Main Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, two 17-year-old residents of Uglegorsk were planning to commit a terrorist attack. According to the investigation, they began to commit the crime in 2019.

Since September, they have posted calls for terrorist activities on the Internet. Then they bought a sawn-off shotgun of a hunting rifle, cartridges and explosives. With this, they made three improvised explosive devices. The target of the terrorists was to become a technical school in the village of Shakhtersk.

They did not have time to complete their plan: on March 23, 2020, they were detained by FSB officers for the Sakhalin Region. They are now in custody. A criminal case with an approved charge under several articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation was sent to the court for consideration on the merits. Teenagers are charged with preparing for a terrorist attack, publicly justifying and promoting terrorism, calling for such actions, illegal acquisition and storage of weapons and explosives, and making explosive devices.
