Court sentences IS sympathizer to 16 years for planning terror attack in Cherkessk

The Southern District Military Court sentenced Azamat Kalov, a resident of the Kabardino-Balkaria Republic, who was preparing a terrorist attack in Cherkessk, to 16 years in prison. This was reported to Lente.ru by the press service of the court.

The convicted Russian will serve his sentence in a strict regimen colony, with the first 3.5 years in prison.

According to the investigators, in 2021, the man posted calls for terrorist activities on social media and justified the terrorists. In the fall of the same year, he swore allegiance to the international terrorist organization “Islamic State” banned in Russia and entered into correspondence with his supporter. For several months, Kalov studied mine blasting, performance characteristics of small arms and ammunition online, after which he manufactured an improvised explosive device.

In Cherkessk, a man videotaped the buildings of state institutions and law enforcement, picking up an object to attack. On September 27, 2021, Kalov received instructions from an IS supporter to transfer the IED he had made to a cache. However, he failed to commit a terrorist attack, as he was detained by law enforcement officers.
