Neo-Nazi of 18 was the one shooting in Khabarovsk FSB office
The authorities are yet to name the motives of the attack.
The FSB has identified the person who attacked the department in Khabarovsk. It was A.V. Konev, a native of the Khabarovsk Region born in 1999. The FSB Public Relations Center added that the young man belonged to a neo-Nazi group.
As The CrimeRussia reported previously, the attack occurred today around 5:00 pm (10:00 am Moscow time) on Sheronova Street. A young man got into the waiting room and started random shootings at the people around with a Kalashnikov assault rifle, without crossing the technical control zone. An employee of the Anti-Terrorism Department was killed in the attack, as well as one of the visitors, an Azerbaijani national; another visitor got injured. The assailant was killed, while some reports claim the perpetrator committed suicide rather than was killed by special services officers.
The FSB is yet to report the motives of the crime.
Meanwhile, Life wrote that A.V. Kobelev was an adherent of Islam without citing a source of the information. They say that the young man converted to Islam two years ago.
After the shootings, law enforcement agencies began to inspect the FSB building and found a suspicious bag. Sappers and canine team were summoned to examine the building and the surroundings.
Oleg Zaytsev had wide connections within the criminal world and law enforcement agencies. This is being related to an organized crime group headed by Ruslan Kilievich that had allegedly been patronized by a former Federal Security Service Directorate officer Oleg Natalchenko. The crime group had also been a core driver for almost disbanding the criminal investigation department of the police.
