Nikita Uvarov, a 15-year-old defendant in the “case of the Kansk teenagers,” was released from the pre-trial detention centre. Together with his friends, they had planned to “blow up” the FSB building in Minecraft.
Nikita Uvarov, a teenager from Kansk (Krasnoyarsk Territory), was released from the pre-trial detention centre after 11 months of imprisonment.
After Uvarov spent almost 11 months in jail, on April 30, the Krasnoyarsk Regional Court, which responded to a complaint from the defence, declared it illegal to keep the teenager locked up. No other charges have been brought forward against Uvarova, so on May 4 he was released. He does not admit his guilt.
The boys were detained in June 2020. Law enforcement officers had arrested the boys after information had emerged that the boys had planned to blow up the FSB building in the computer game Minecraft.
According to the investigation, they “were training to carry out terrorist activities for the future – committing a terrorist act on the territory of Kansk by committing explosions in buildings in which law enforcement agencies are located.”
