A law enforcement source told Interfax that the detainees were adherents of the ideology of mass murder in schools, the so-called "schoolshooters". They began planning their attack on the school a year ago, according to the Telegram channel "112", after having seen enough of thematic videos on the network.
During the searches, they found two homemade pistols, nine firecrackers with metal bullets, tactical gloves, a balaclava, and a T-shirt with the inscription "Natural selection".
Now the issue of initiating a criminal case on the facts of planning a murder and illegal possession of weapons is being resolved.
At the end of December, FSB officers detained a 17-year-old teenager who was preparing a terrorist attack in Tambov. During searches in his apartment, they found a kit for making homemade explosives. Then it was noted that he found information on how to create an explosive device in the public domain on the Internet.
