The Zamoskvoretsky District Court of Moscow sent 18-year-old Yaroslav Kuligin, 17-year-old Nikita Alekseenko and 16-year-old Evgeny Nazarenko to pre-trial detention center, who are suspected of setting fire to an electric train at the Domodedovo depot. This is reported by the telegram channel “Caution, News.”
According to the arrest cards on the court website, Nazarenko and Alekseenko are charged with setting fire to a vehicle “in order to undermine the economic security” of Russia by a group of persons by prior conspiracy (para. “a” part 2 of article 281 of the Criminal Code). Kuligin is suspected of sabotage, which entailed causing significant property damage (clause “b” of Part 2 of Article 281 of the Criminal Code).
So far, information about the detention of teenagers has not appeared on the court’s website. At the same time, card data is periodically updated with a delay.
Initially it was reported that a case was opened against the teenagers for rendering vehicles and communications unusable (Part 1 of Article 267 of the Criminal Code).
As RBC wrote, teenagers set fire to an electric train on October 21. Then the head carriage of the train burned down, along with the driver’s cabin and part of the vestibule – about 60 square meters in total. According to Baza, a month later the teenagers returned to the depot and damaged the relay cabinet. After that, they were identified by cameras and detained.
