The official version of the investigation from an anonymous source in the law enforcement agencies. Allegedly, the leader – that’s 27 years old Nikita Oleynik from Surgut – “created a terrorist group” due to “his hatred of current regime”. During the last year, he allegedly involved in this group his friends and “assigned them roles” in order to “undertake terrorist activity” in Tyumen of Sverdlovsk Oblast and in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug. With that claim of that, they opened a case against Oleynik with charges of “Creation of terrorist community”, while against the rest – under the “Participation in terrorist community”

The 24 year old auto mechanic Kirill Brik and 23 year old Deniz Aidin from Tyumen are considered by the investigation as bombers: in the case file they are listed as “manufacturers” of the explosive. Therefore, they are additionally accused of “Production of improvised explosives”.

According to security forces’ data, Oleynik wanted to use Danila Chertikov from Yekaterinburg as a doctor, so that he would provide the “terrorist group” with medication. Which medication in particular is unknown, but as veterinarian Chertikov was working in “Vetpuls” clinic and treated animals, not people.

As the source claims, the investigator believes that Oleynik organized secret meetings of the six, during which they were discussing “how they will overthrow the government”, and was also involved in recruitment, manipulation and “propaganda of terrorist activity” within the group. According to investigation’s version, the accused were involved in “destructive activity” on the territory of Ural region all year. The source didn’t mention what that activity involved.
