Group connected to Al-Qaeda took responsibility for St. Petersburg terrorist attack
Imam Shamil’s battalion took responsibility for explosion in the subway.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation made annulment of citizenship of the Russian Federation of terrorist Akbarzhon Jalilov, who blew up a bomb in subway of St. Petersburg. This was reported by press service of the department.
Katiba Al Imam Shamil (Imam Shamil’s battalion) connected to Al-Qaeda (forbidden in the Russian Federation – the CrimeRussia’s note) declared its participation in the terrorist attack in the St. Petersburg metro, which happened on April 3. This was reported by SITE portal, which monitors Islamic radicals.
As it is said in the statement, terrorists claim that Akbarzhon Jalilov conducted the blasting by order of Al-Qaeda’s leader Ayman al-Zavahiri. Thus extremists demand from Moscow to disengage troops from Syria. Otherwise, Russia may face new terrorist attacks, a representative of the group warned.
Earlier, media reported that the paymaster of terrorist attack in the subway was Sirozhiddin Mukhtarov, who is hiding under pseudonym Abu Salah al-Uzbeky. It is known in Bishkek that he was connected with the Uigur terrorist groups, which are at war in Syria and are related to Al-Qaeda and Jabhat al-Nusra (forbidden in Russia).
Besides, earlier it was supposed that the Islamic State, which is also forbidden in the Russian Federation, is responsible for the terrorist attack.
