The full name of the Russian is not revealed, only his Latin initials are known - “G.A.”

A cache of explosives was left in Brussels by a retired Russian soldier who died in 2011. Interfax reports with reference to the statement of the Belgian Prosecutor's Office.

A bag with explosives, knives and brass knuckles was discovered by the owner of the house during repairs. There were also found stocks of nails, bolts and blanks for improvised explosive devices, reminiscent of those used by terrorists in France and Belgium.

The owner of the weapons cache was a former Russian soldier who rented an apartment in this house and deceased in 2011. His fingerprints were found on a piece of scotch on the packaging of one of the knives. The full name of the Russian is not revealed, only his Latin initials - “G.A.” A survey of homeowners showed that the former tenant was "mentally unstable and prone to paranoia."

The Prosecutor's Office intends to terminate this case since the man died in 2011.
