YEKATERINBURG, November 23 (Itar-Tass) — A trial resumed in the Sverdlovsk regional court on Friday over the case of organization of an uprising in Yekaterinburg.
The defendant on trial is Leonid Khabarov, a suspected accomplice of retired GRU military intelligence service colonel Vladimir Kvachkov. Khabarov has been discharged from the hospital and returned into custody on November 21, his attorney Andrei Burmistrov told Itar-Tass.
The court hearings resumed on Friday. Witnesses are questioned by the prosecution party in the court, the lawyer said. According to doctors, Khabarov after the treatment is in satisfactory condition, but his attorney said, referring to the doctors, that the defendant needed a deep medical examination and treatment not in a jail.
On October 24, Khabarov complained that he had pains in the lungs and the heart. His condition worsened. Khabarov earlier was ill with pneumonia in the jail, but he did not take a full course of treatment because he was held in custody.
The defendant was denied a medical examination. The jail administration said that the custody conditions met the standards and the defendant did not need a comprehensive medical examination. In this connection, Khabarov made a complaint to the prosecutor's office. After that, the decision was taken to hospitalize him.
Other defendants in the case of attempted organization of an armed rebellion are Viktor Kralin and Alexander Ladeishchikov. His son Vladislav Ladeishchikov is already sentenced to six years on probation. The trial is expected to be long.
Retired colonel Khabarov is a former director of the Military Technical Education and Security Institute of Ural Federal University and the first commandant of the Salang mountain pass in Afghanistan. He was detained in Yekaterinburg last year on charges of attempted organization of an armed rebellion and recruiting and involving in terrorist activities. The investigators suppose Khabarov was involved in the organization of an uprising in Yekaterinburg, which was thwarted by the FSB security service.
The case against retired colonel Kvachkov is considered by a Moscow court.
