Terrorist attack at Crocus City Hall

On the evening of March 22, terrorists opened fire in the Crocus City Hall concert hall before the start of a performance by the Russian musical group Picnic. Then a fire broke out in the building.

According to the latest data, 144 people were killed as a result of the terrorist attack.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, in an address to Russians, called the incident a bloody and barbaric terrorist act and emphasized that all perpetrators, organizers and customers of the terrorist attack will be punished.

On March 23, the FSB reported the detention of 11 people, including four militants who were directly involved in the terrorist attack. The attackers tried to escape in a car, heading towards the Russian-Ukrainian border, and were detained by security forces in the Bryansk region. A criminal case was opened against the detainees under the article “Terrorist attack”.

On March 24, the Moscow Basmanny Court arrested all four defendants in the terrorist attack case. Dalerjon Mirzoev*, Rachabalizoda Murodali*, Shamsidin Fariduni* and Muhammadsobir Fayzov* will remain in pretrial detention until May 22. During interrogation, they admitted that they were promised 500 thousand rubles for four people for carrying out a terrorist attack. The two defendants face life imprisonment.

During subsequent interrogations, it became known that after the terrorist attack, four militants drove a car towards the border with Ukraine in order to get to Kyiv to receive the money they were promised. The terrorists acted on the instructions of their curator, with whom they communicated in the Telegram messenger.

Detentions and arrests of terrorist accomplices

On March 31, in Dagestan, FSB officers detained three militants who were preparing a terrorist attack in Kaspiysk. During interrogation, one of them admitted to involvement in the terrorist attack at Crocus: the militant financed the terrorists and also brought them weapons from Makhachkala to the Moscow region.

On March 25, the court arrested three more accomplices who helped the terrorists – Isroil Islomov and his two sons – Aminchon and Dilovar Islomov.
