NALCHIK, April 15 /TASS/. The Russian Federal Security Service has detained a man, who was trained in a military camp in Syria, in Nalchik, the capital of the Kabardino-Balkaria, a republic in the Russian North Caucasus, a source at the press service of the Federal Security Service for Kabardino-Balkaria told TASS on Friday.
"On April 15, employees of the Russian Federal Security Service for Kabardino-Balkaria in cooperation with the republic’s Interior Ministry detained a native of Nalchik, born 1992, in an operation designed to identify the residents of Kabardino-Balkaria who fought on the side of illegal armed units in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic in pursuit of goals, which contradict Russia’s interests," the Federal Security Service said.
It was established that the detainee had crossed the Turkish-Syrian border in September 2014 and voluntarily joined an armed group, which was fighting against the government troops in Syria. The man underwent special training in a militant camp with an aim to take part in terrorist activities on order from the armed group’s chieftain," the FSB department for Kabardino-Balkaria said.
The suspect told the police that natives of other Russian regions had mastered the terrorist tactics - how to wage military hostilities and stage subversive acts - together with him. All of them had crossed into Syria via the so-called Turkish corridor.
Criminal proceedings have been initiated against the man on charges of undergoing illegal training for the purpose of being involved in subversive activities and participating in illegal armed units.
