Perm – Maxim Aramilev, a correspondence student at the Moscow Financial and Industrial University living in Perm, has been charged with preparing for a terrorist attack.
According to the FSB, he intended to set fire to the building of the Central Perm synagogue and the office of the Perm Regional Committee of the Communist Party. This became known at the court session, where Aramilev’s request to be released from the pre-trial detention center under house arrest was rejected.
The criminal case against 20-year-old Maxim Aramilev was initiated by the investigative department of the FSB in the Perm Territory on June 19, 2023. As a suspect, he was detained and interrogated on June 21. On the same day, he was charged with preparing for a terrorist act (part 1 of article 205 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), placed in a temporary detention center.
The reason for the investigation was the results of operational-search activities. It was established that Aramilev adhered to nationalist views and intended to use arson to intimidate the population and destabilize the socio-political situation in Russia.
