“I was told: to kill is normal”

Inspired by Islam, the 18-year-old Yevgeny Efimov decided to “fight the infidels” and self-explode in the Kazan Cathedral of St. Petersburg on one of the Christian holidays, when the church was especially crowded. Subsequently, the failed suicide bailout refused his intention and repented. But this did not save the guy from the strict regime colony.
The case of the attack was investigated surprisingly quickly. As the investigation found out, the explosion should have thundered on December 17, 2017, on the day of memory of St. Barbara Iliopolskaya. Efimov was detained on December 13, his four alleged accomplices (parishioners of the same mosque as Efimov) - on December 14, 2017. The men were accused of being aware of the impending explosion, but not informed. Court hearings began in June 2018.
At first, they sentenced the two who pleaded guilty: Shamil Omargadzhiev (he intends to seek an investigation into torture during the investigation of the case) and Aliskhan Esmurziyev. Both received 2.5 years in penal colony.The third defendant, Firuz Kalavurov did not plead guilty, he has not yet been sentenced. The fourth accomplice in the "explosive" case, Anton Kobets, still under investigation. The case of the main defendant, Yevgeny Yefimov, was completed by August 2018.
The plot of the event is as follows. A young guy, Yevgeny Efimov, was fascinated by the ideas of the ISIL terrorist group banned in Russia and decided to arrange a self-bombing in the Kazan Cathedral. December 17 was chosen as the date of the explosion - an Orthodox holiday, the day of St. Barbara the Great Martyr. On this day a large service usually takes place in the cathedral, many people gather. In preparation for the terrorist attack, Efimov was collecting a bomb in a rented garage on Litovskaya Street.
It is not known who helped the special services to learn about the planned explosion. According to one version, FSB officers were called by colleagues from the CIA. According to another - the owner of the garage was passing by, he smelled a strange smell, looked inside and, finding a bunch of strange objects, called the police. According to the third version, as Alexander Pochuev, Efimov’s lawyer, said, after Eugene converted to Islam, law enforcement officers conducted preventive conversations with him several times.
It is possible that they “looked after” him, therefore, they found out about the impending terrorist act. And Pochuyev assures that a day before his arrest, Yevgeny Efimov changed his mind, refused the idea of ​​a terrorist act and extracted explosives from a bomb.
On August 9, the first one was held - it is the only one - the hearing on the case of the “non-terrorist”. Held his Moscow District Military Court, but at a retreat in St. Petersburg. Efimov pleaded guilty and asked to judge him in a special way - without research and evaluation of evidence in the case. The court went to meet.
Even before the process began, Alexander Pochuev said that his client, roughly speaking, was brainwashed.
- There was no psychological impact on Yevgeny during the investigation, - noted Alexander Pochuyev. - But at the stage of preparation for the crime there was a psychological impact. Eugene said that everything was "in a fog."

According to the lawyer, Islam Efimov carried away by youth and inexperience. Even when the guy was in school, the teacher on life-support for children mentioned the dangers of radical Islamic groups. For Eugene, her words were the impetus to ask: what kind of religion is this? Islam attracted a guy to those (as Alexander Pochuev says), which did not contradict the principles of goodness and correctness that Eugene had been taught since childhood. Further more.
In search of information, then still underage Zhenya got on the social network, found a group of supporters of ISIL (banned in Russia), from there he went to a popular instant messenger. There he fell into the hands of recruiters. They "washed" Eugene's brains and persuaded to engage in the fight against the infidels. Why wanted to blow up precisely the civilian population? As explained by the lawyer (according to Efimov), Eugene was deceived.
He was told that, they say, Russian soldiers are killing women and children in Syria. And what, he says, by his self-exploding in the cathedral he will draw attention to these problems. The guy fell for it. Then, however, he got worried and several times asked the “curators”: is it really good to kill people? They answered him: for the sake of truth, it is normal. Even need.
