NALCHIK, March 11 (Itar-Tass) —— The case of ten members of an illegal armed group has been investigated in Kabardino-Balkaria, a source at the republican office of the Russian Investigation Committee told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
Teimur Medvedev, a 25-year-old resident of Nalchik, and Azret Cherkesov, a 27-year-old resident of the Cherkessk region, were serving prison time together with 24-year-old Felix Asanov from Nalchik from 2008 to 2010. Upon their release they formed an illegal criminal group together with Aslan Kafoyev, 25, Farukh Artikov, 21, Asker Bekaldiyev, 24, Ramazan Nagaplezhev, 24, and Omar Temmoyev, 24.
“The men bought weapons and plenty of ammunition, which they kept in caches, and practiced shooting ahead of attacks on law enforcers,” the source said.
Igor Aliyev, 26, from Nalchik, sold his car to Asanov in spring 2010 and bought an AK-74 Kalashnikov submachine gun instead. Marat Dotkulov, 22, donated a grenade launcher projectile to Asanov, he said.
“Depending on the role each suspect played in the illegal armed group, they faced various charges, such as financing of terrorism, illegal acquisition of weapons, formation of an illegal armed group and planning of attacks on law enforcers and servicemen,” the source said.
