Russian FSB officers detained a group of neo-Nazi ideology supporters in Kaliningrad, who planned terrorist actions.
The two detainees, born in 1990 and 1996, maintained active links with the extremists of Ukraine – the militants of the “Right Sector” and the “Azov” regiment, banned in Russia.
According to sources close to law enforcement agencies, they were preparing to travel to Ukraine for training in punitive units, including during the armed conflict in the south-east of the country. The figurants planned to use obtained skills in further crimes of an extremist and terrorist nature on the territory of the Kaliningrad region.
At the same time, they had already organized attacks on participants of the collection of humanitarian assistance for residents of the DPR and LPR.
It should be noted that one of the detainees, who is the so-called informal leader of fascist youth, previously served four years in prison for committing extremist crimes. At his place of residence, a whole arsenal of firearms, cold weapons and special weapons were found, as well as 81 mm mortar from the Second World War times, components for making firearms.
The Investigatory Division of the FSB of Russia in the Kaliningrad region has instituted criminal proceedings against detainees for illegal circulation of explosives and the propaganda of terrorism.
In addition, three more suspected accomplices in criminal activities were detained in these criminal cases. In total, there were at least five people in the group. The detentions took place on March 21, 2017.
At present, the evidence base is being collected on the fact of their preparation for participation in the activities of Ukrainian punitive units, as well as the opening of all possible episodes of their illegal acts and the establishment of criminal ties.
