Crocus City Hall terrorists captured. One of them admits he agreed to kill for money

Federal Security Service (FSB) Director Alexander Bortnikov informed Russian President Vladimir Putin about the detention of 11 individuals in connection with the terrorist attack at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow's suburban town of Krasnogorsk.

According to him, four terrorists who were directly involved in the shooting are among the detainees. They were detained several hours apart in the Bryansk region.

Terrorists planned to cross the Russian-Ukrainian border

According to the FSB, the terrorists had planned the attack at Crocus City Hall in advance. After the attack, the criminals intended to cross the border between Russia and Ukraine as they had contacts on the Ukrainian side. The attackers are being transported to Moscow; the search for accomplices is underway.

According to Shot Telegram channel, the alleged terrorists had designated an approximate area where they could hide from security forces and meet with their accomplices. They failed to reach the border with Ukraine and were stopped on the way in the Bryansk region.

According to mixed reports, they escaped from the crime scene having vanished in the crowd.  

On March 23 at night, security forces found a white Renault Symbol vehicle in the area of the village of Khatsun, the Bryansk region. The driver did not stop the car at the request of law enforcement officers. During the chase, the police opened fire at the vehicle causing it to overturn.

According to Mash and Baza, there were four people in the car:

  • 37-year-old Makhmadrasul Nasridinov,
  • 51-year-old Rivozhidin Ismonov,
  • 21-year-old Safolzoda Shokhinjonn
  • and 29-year-old Rustam Nazarov.

Two of them were detained, whereas two others escaped and vanished in the forest.

When searching the Renault Symbol vehicle, security forces found a PM pistol, a magazine for an AKM assault rifle, and several passports.

"They delivered the weapons themselves, they were texting me on Telegram, there were no names, nothing.

He promised about a million rubles, he said we had to kill people, "no matter whom,” they dropped the location for the attack.
