The schoolboy is accused of preparing a terrorist attack, he will remain in pre-trial detention center at least until April 22.
- After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, attempts were made in Russia to set fire to dozens of military enlistment offices and other state institutions – as a rule, fires are quickly extinguished. Several people were convicted on charges of hooliganism or damage to property, but since the fall of last year, investigative bodies have reclassified similar cases to the much more serious charge of terrorism.
