VOLGOGRAD, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The Volgograd Regional Court sentenced Mussa Yasulov to 12 years in a tough security penitentiary with 18 months of restricted freedom of movement after serving the sentence. He was found guilty of masterminding and staging the April explosions at the buildings of the traffic police and the Interior Ministry’s Academy in Volgograd.
The court found him guilty under the following articles of the Criminal Code for an attempted murder of two and more people out of ideological hatred and strife, the premeditated damage of private property that entailed major damages, the illegal making of explosive devices and the illegal storage, transportation and carrying of explosive devices committed by a criminal group in a conspiracy.
In the verdict the judge took into account mitigating circumstances, which is the giving himself up to the authorities and the fact that Yasulov assisted to solve the blast case.
The public prosecutor earlier requested the court to sentence Yasulov to 15 years in prison followed with two years of restricted freedom of movement.
