MOSCOW, September 10. (Itar-Tass) – At the Moscow City Court session on Tuesday, the public prosecutor asked for a 15 year sentence in maximum security penal colony for Kazakhstani citizen Ilya Pyanzin, who has admitted to being guilty of preparing an assassination attempt at Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, reported Itar-Tass correspondent.
The court has examined the case behind closed doors. Special procedure is applied to court hearings as Pyanzin has made a deal with the investigation; no details of the deal are available.
According to the investigation, Pyanzin was in Ukraine in December 2011. He was approached by Adam Osmaev and Ruslan Magadaev and recruited into a militant group, created by the order of Doku Umarov, the leader of an illegal militant group “Imarat Kavkaz.”
The assassination attempt was to be conducted in Moscow: a rigged car was supposed to be detonated when approached by the presidential motorcade.
