The court determined that Mustafinova should be taken into custody immediately upon her extradition to Russia or detention in the territory of the country.⁠

On November 13, Moscow witnessed the Lefortovo court arresting Aminat Mustafinova, known as Amina Okuyeva, who was killed October 30 in the Ukrainian village of Glevakha, for two months in absentia, TASS reported citing the court's press service.

In court confirmed to the agency that Okuyeva's full namesake was arrested in absentia under part 2 of Art. 205.2 of the Criminal Code (Public Calls for Committing of Terrorist Activity or Public Justification of Terrorism committed through the use of the mass media). The decision on the arrest of Mustafinova was also published on the official portal of the courts of Moscow.

According to the court's decision, Mustafinova should be detained from the moment of extradition to Russia or detention in the territory of the country. Aminat Vakhitovna Mustafinova, born in 1983, is mentioned under number 4963 in the list of terrorists and extremists, published on the official website of the Federal Service for Financial Monitoring (Rosfinmonitoring) as a person against whom there is evidence of involvement in terrorism.

The car in which Adam Osmayev, the suspect in the attempt on President Vladimir Putin, and his wife Okuyeva were, was fired on October 30 in the Ukrainian village of Glevakha. Okuyeva was killed by a shot in the head, Osmaev was wounded in the leg. The prosecutor's office of the Kiev region initiated a case of Intentional Contract Killing (item 11, part 2 of Art. 115 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

Advisor to the Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Anton Gerashchenko claimed that the investigators were considering two versions of the attack - the actions of Russian special services and "revenge to Adam Osmayev for Kadyrov." This is not the first attack on Osmayev - he was tried to be killed in Kiev on June 1, but Okuyeva fatally shot the attacker.

Osmayev was detained in 2012 on suspicion of preparing a terrorist act in Odessa. Then he also confessed to preparing an attempt on presidential hopeful Putin. In the spring of 2014, the Ukrainian Prosecutor's Office dropped the charges from Osmayev in an attempt on Putin and participation in a terrorist organization.

Later, Osmayev joined the Volunteer Battalion named after Dzhokhar Dudayev, which participated in the armed conflict in the east of Ukraine against supporters of self-proclaimed the Luhansk People's Republic and the Donetsk People's Republic. Osmayev was the third husband of Okuyeva. TASS informs that she also fought in the southeast of Ukraine on the side of the government.
