MOSCOW, December 8. /TASS/. The state prosecution has asked court to sentence a former student of the philosophy department of Moscow’s State University, Varvara Karaulova (who has now changed her name to Aleksandra Ivanova) to five years in a normal security penitentiary and a fine for an attempt to join the Islamic State (a terrorist group outlawed in Russia), Prosecutor Mikhail Reznichenko said in debate.
"I am asking the court to sentence Ivanova to five years in a normal security penitentiary and a fine of 150,000 rubles," he said.
The prosecutor said Karaulova’s guilt had been fully proven and her intention to go to Syria was by no means explained by some kind of romantic affection.
The debate is going on. The defense lawyer will take the floor soon.
As follows from the bill of indictment, Karaulova made a decision to join the Islamic State’s group called Badr with the aim of eventually carrying out an act of sabotage - in Syria or Europe - by committing a suicide bomb attack. The young woman established contact with an unidentified person in a social network with the aim of becoming a member of one of the group’s cells.
