YEKATERINBURG, May 17 (Itar-Tass) — The prosecutor for the state at the Sverdlovsk regional court on Thursday demanded 5.5 years in a general regime penitentiary for Vladimir Ladeishchikov, a suspected accomplice of retired Main Intelligence Department Colonel Vladimir Kvachkov who accused of attempted armed mutiny.
Ladeishchikov's lawyers asked the court to take into account the fact that their client had signed a plea bargain agreement, admitted his guilt and helped investigate the criminal case.
The verdict is expected at noon on Thursday.
The investigators believe Ladeishchikov abetted Kvachkov in organizing an armed munity.
He was accused of "abetting terrorist activity,", "illegal acquisition, handover, sale, keeping and transportation or carrying of arms and explosives."
The case against Ladeishchikov was reviewed under special procedure as the defendant had pleaded guilty and cooperated with the investigators.
According to the investigator, Vladimir Ladeishchikov was a member of the Minin and Pozharsky's Militia movement, and engaged in operation/search activities. The movement's participants planned to murder the executives of the law-enforcement bodies of the Sverdlovsk region and the heads of several ethnic communities and blast transmission lines pylons and the thermal power plant in Yekaterinburg.
The group's activists intended to launch the special operation Rassvet /"Dawn"/ to seize power in the city on August 2, 2011. To implement the criminal plans, it instructed its members in demolition techniques.
Aside from Ladeishchikov, Col Leonid Khabarov was detained as suspected abettor. He was accused of attempted armed mutiny and recruiting or involving persons in terrorism.
The investigation into the case against Colonel Kvachov was completed in December 2011. The defendant and his lawyers are now reading the case materials. Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) said retired Colonel of Main Intelligence Department Vladimir Kvachkov was a suspect under two articles of the Criminal Code: Article 279 and Article 30, Part 1 (attempted organization of armed mutiny) and Article 205, Part 1 (recruiting or involving persons in terrorism).
Kvachkov was the key suspect in the case over the assassination attempt on the life of chief of RAO UES electric utility Chubais on March 17, 2005.
A jury found all the defendants in the assassination attempt case not guilty, in a marathon eight-hour session overnight to August 21, 2010. Kvachkov recently demanded a 50-million-rouble compensation from the Finance Ministry for illegal prosecution.
