The Moscow District Military Court on Monday sentenced two militants from the ISIS terrorist group to 15 years in prison each for preparing terrorist attacks on a train in Moscow and at a shopping mall in the Moscow suburb, a Sputnik correspondent reported from a courtroom.

“To give Bakhtier Makhmudov and Zafarkhon Rakhmatov 15 years in a high-security colony for multiple offences,” a judge said.

Both men were detained on 11 December 2017, a day before a planned terrorist attack. During the search, police found detonators and other materials used to make bombs.

“They downloaded a video showing how to make an explosive device, and planned to detonate it at the Moscow Ring Railway station Shelepikha and the Edelweiss shopping centre in Balashikha [a town near Moscow],” a prosecutor said.

Both terrorists pleaded guilty and asked for indulgence, the court’s press service told Sputnik. The ruling can be appealed within 10 days.
