A school shooting follower who planned to carry out a major attack in his former school was convicted of Khabarovsk. The First Eastern District Military Court sentenced 19-year-old Alexander Onufrienko to eight years in prison.

According to the press service of the FSB Directorate for the Khabarovsk Territory, the convict was a supporter of unsystematic opposition views and a follower of the ideology of "school shooting" (school shooting). He planned to shoot people at school number 30 based on political hatred and hostility.

The Khabarovsk citizen tried to draw up a weapon for the attack in a legal way: he issued medical certificates, registered on the website of the State Service for a license to purchase hunting smoothbore weapons, and began to visit gun shops. He also tried to illegally buy weapons through the Internet.

The Khabarovsk resident planned to carry out an armed attack on the school on February 22, 2019, but he was arrested. The security forces found and seized from him leaflets of the Russian National Unity, whose activities are prohibited on the territory of Russia, school shooting symbols, a belt unload for carrying ammunition, a sawn-off shotgun of a double-barreled hunting rifle and 95 cartridges for it.

Alexander Onufrienko admitted his guilt, actively cooperated with the investigation. The court sentenced him to eight years in prison. The first three years he will serve his sentence in prison, and then in a maximum security colony. The verdict has not yet entered into force.
