The prosecution called for 3 years in prison for Azat Miftahov


During the hearing at the Central District Military Court in Yekaterinburg on March 28, the prosecution requested for the anarchist and mathematician Azat Miftahov three years of imprisonment in a high-security prison in the case of justifying terrorism. This was reported by the Telegram channel in support of Myftakhov.

He is accused of the fact that, while in the colony, he, in a conversation with other prisoners, approved the concession of Mikhail Zhlobytskyi, who set off an explosion in the FSB building in Arkhangelsk and was killed in the process (there were no other victims).

Azat Miftakhov, a former postgraduate student of the Moscow State University Mehmat, served five years and nine months in prison on charges of hooliganism – according to the investigation, he and several other people broke a window in one of the Moscow offices of United Russia and threw a smoke bomb into it. Myftakhov stated that he was questioned during the investigation and refused to testify.

Shortly before the deadline, it became known about a new criminal case. Myftakhov was detained immediately after he left the colony in September 2023, and was sent to a pre-trial detention center.

Myftakhov does not admit guilt, the defense insists on his full acquittal. Speaking in court, Myftakhov noted that he argued with other prisoners about the capture of the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut after watching the news, but he did not say anything about Zhlobytskyi in this dispute.

  • On October 31, 2018, 17-year-old anarchist Mikhail Zhlobytsky detonated a bomb in the building of the Federal Security Service of Arkhangelsk. Three FSB officers were injured, Zhlobytsky was killed. The case was qualified as a terrorist attack, and criminal cases were initiated for comments with approval or sympathy for Zhlobytskyi’s act. OVD-Info is aware of 54 such cases initiated after the explosion in Arkhangelsk.
