MOSOCW, January 14. /TASS/. Russian citizen Aidar Suleimanov detained in Turkey led the network that transported people from Russia to the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization, a source in one of Russian agencies said on Thursday.
According to the source, Suleimanov left Russia on 26 July 2003 through the Novaya Guta border checkopoint.
He actively participated in the activities of terrorist organizations linked with IS, organized and led the network that transported people from Russia to IS.
Suleimanov also helped other Russian citizens detained in Turkey after terrorist attacks to leave Russia and reach the Middle East.
According to Russian Foreign Ministry official spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Suleimanov is accused of ties with the IS terrorist organization in Russia's Tatarstan.
"On 10 August 2015 he was charged in absentia by Tatarstan’s authorities with involvement in IS and recruiting terrorists for this organization. After that, on 25 November 2015, Suleimanov was put on Interpol’s international wanted list," Zakharova stressed.
"This is the case when extremists accused of terrorist activities in Russia, unfortunately, feel rather carefree on territory of several foreign countries for many years," the spokesperson added.
