Abror Azimov, the native of Kyrgyzstan, has been in Turkey several times. And during his last time he came back through Seoul.

One of the alleged organizers of the terrorist attack in St. Petersburg, detained on Monday, April 17 in the Moscow Region, Abror Azimov, has recently returned from Turkey, Fontanka reports.

According to the portal, Azimov was in east republic in March and October, 2016. As the informed interlocutors report, the route of the detainee was rather unusual – after flying from Moscow to Istanbul, he returned to the capital in three days through Seoul and Vladivostok.

Besides, the portal learned that Azimov was born in 1990 in Kyrgyzstan, in the city of Jalal-Abad - the second-large city of the Republic located in the Fergana Valley in the 200th kilometers from Osh. The alleged organizer of the terrorist attack got the Russian citizenship presumably in 2014-2016.

As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, Azimov was detained by the staff of the Federal Security Service in the Odintsovo district of the Moscow Region on Monday, April 17. The investigation assumes that he was one of mentors of Akbarzhon Jalilov, who arranged explosion in the St. Petersburg metro.

To recall, on April 3, an explosion happened in the St. Petersburg metro. 14 people became the victims of terrorist attack, more than 50 have suffered. Alleged suicide bomber Akbardzhon Jalilov was a native of Kyrgyzstan, but received Russian passport few years ago.
