Daughter of Special Police Force former deputy commander suspected of pleas to terrorism
Anastasia Lutsenko could have fallen a victim of recruitment, law enforcement authorities assume.
The daughter of the former second-in-command of Special Police Force of Regional Office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs across the Oryol region is suspected of participation in terrorist activity. Now a check is being conducted concerning her, by results of which a criminal case will be initiated under Article 205.2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Public Calls for the implementation of terrorist activity), RBC writes with reference to a source close to the investigation.
According to him, the video that the girl posted in social network VKontakte under the name The Nasheed about Chechens (the propaganda song of Islamic State (IS), the terrorist group banned in Russia) lasting 3 minutes 58 seconds was the cause. It was published on Lutsenko's page in June 2016. According to the conclusion of a linguistic examination, it includes appeals to terrorism.
According to information of a source, it is established that the girl accepted Islam in October 2013, after what she took the name Sumaya. “This decision was influenced by her pen friend Muhammad who wrote her that he was at war against government troops in Syria and protected Muslims from the aggression of the dictator”, a source in the Federal Security Service commented. The pen friend supplied newly made Sumaya with propaganda videos, but at the beginning of 2014, he was killed in Syria.
After this, in the same social network, Anastasia got acquainted with another supporter of radical Islam, a Chechen living in France. She shared with the new friend that she wanted to go to the Middle East. After a while young people have broken up, a source reported, but the girl continued to place extremist posts.
In 2016 field investigators came to Anastasia with searches as a result of which three thunder flashes, two smoke grenades, packing of army lighting fires and also secret orders of the Ministry of Internal Affairs were found. However, all this belonged to the girl's father who at that time was the deputy commander of Special Police Force of Regional Office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia across the Oryol region. A check was carried out upon the allowed violations, while the security officer was given a reprimand. But several months later Luchenko was caught on a repeated violation and was dismissed.
In early November 2017, Basmanny Court of Moscow has satisfied the motion brought by the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) and remanded Aleksander Shukyurov, Director of the Capital Renovation Directorate State Budgetary Institution of Moscow, in custody. The head of the institution subordinate to the Department of Capital Renovation of the City of Moscow that had acted as the client in tenders worth dozens of billions of rubles is suspected of swindling on an especially large scale.
