MOSCOW, July 7 (Itar-Tass) - A man suspected of extremist activities and fabrication of explosives has been detained in the northwest of Moscow.
A spokesperson for the Russian Interior Ministry’s press service said the detainee had been creating communities of fellow-thinkers through his accounts in the Internet and calling on them to organize civil disobedience actions, as well as acts of terror and demolitions at oil and gas industry installations.
In the process of detention, the man offered a strong physical resistance to the police operatives and tried to destroy the material evidence of his criminal activity - he tried to smash his notebook and to damage the PC cards.
The operatives’ data on the man suggest that he was an active propagandist of destruction of Russia’s constitutional system.
The suspect was living in Moscow illegally and carried on his activity by setting up a laboratory for fabricating explosives in his rented apartment.
He observed strict security measures ranging up to radio listening watch. In addition, his name had been placed on the national list of wanted criminals for involvement in a fraud.
During a search in the apartment the suspect was renting, the policemen found and confiscated the components for producing improvised explosive devices, as well as detonators, a mini-laboratory for working with chemical reagents, specialized technological manuals, telecommunications tools, office equipment, and several PCs.
The police had to evacuate the residents of the twelve-story apartment block to do an examination of the laboratory.
