Late on Monday, May 20, Russia’s FSB officers carried out an anti-terrorist operation in Orekhovo-Zuevo outside Moscow, in which two gunmen were killed and one more was seized. The investigators believe all three were trained for a terrorist act in the Afghan-Pakistan region and intended to stage a blast at a public place in Moscow.
The special operation took place in Baryshnikov Street on Monday afternoon. FSB officers managed to find out that all suspected terrorists are Russian citizens, the Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily writes. According to secret services, they underwent training at camps on the Afghan-Pakistani border. After information had come that the trio was ready for the terrorist act, the decision was made to begin a special operation. Specialists from the National Anti-Terrorism Committee have marked that decisive actions of law enforcement forces made it possible to foil a terrorist attack in the Russian capital.
Reporters from the Moskovsky Komsomolets daily have found out that killed terrorist Yulai Davletbayev lived for several years in Ufa where he vigorously defended the interests of Wahhabi Muslims. Thus, according to a law enforcement source, in 2007 he collected signatures in support of the imam of a Ufa mosque, Said Baiburin, arrested after a TNT block and drugs had been found in his car. Later, owing to an active work of Baiburin’s lawyer, accusations of keeping weapons and drugs were dropped. He was convicted only for appeals to extremist activity.
