Russian national faces trial for alleged failure to report terror attack plot
ST. PETERSBURG, March 18 (RAPSI) – Russian citizen Vyacheslav Pavlovsky, who has allegedly failed to report planned terror attacks to the police, will go on trial, the United press service of St. Petersburg courts told RAPSI Monday.
The case against Pavlovsky will be considered by the Vyborgsky District Court of St. Petersburg.
According to case papers, from March to mid-April 2018, Pavlovsky kept company with radical Islamists and discussed global jihad ideas with them. His acquaintances told the defendant that they were going to commit terrorist attacks in Dagestan.
On April 21, 2018, the might-have-been terrorists were killed by law enforcement officers in the city of Derbent as they struggled on arrest, the indictment reads.
