Members of the neo-Nazi association NS / WP, detained on charges of plotting an assassination attempt on propagandist Margarita Simonyan, are being tortured, knocking out testimonies about preparing terrorist acts, interacting with other NS / WP Crew members and ties with Ukraine. One of the representatives of NS / WP told The Insider about this.
“They are being tortured with electric current, they are strangling, one (sort of) had his arm broken,” the interlocutor said. According to him, a total of five people were detained, one was released. The names of two detainees are known - these are Yegor Savelyev and Sergey Korolenkov.
The FSB report says that the detainees are members of the Paragraph-88 group, but The Insider's source said that this organization did not last long and self-disbanded "due to a gross violation of security by one of the participants."
As for the allegations that the detainees had connections with the Ukrainian Security Service, The Insider’s source explained: “We are not ‘trans-Ukrainians’, let alone ‘trans-Ukrainians’, but some of us have friends in Ukraine. Specifically, none of the detainees has ever been on the territory of Ukraine.” The source called the accusations of preparing an assassination attempt on Simonyan and Ksenia Sobchak "nonsense of the Chekists."
Employees of the FSB and the Investigative Committee claim that they prevented the Ukrainian special services from preparing the murder of propagandist Margarita Simonyan and TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak. They allegedly confiscated a Kalashnikov assault rifle with cartridges, rubber truncheons, knives, brass knuckles and handcuffs from the detainees. At the same time, the special service stated that the detainees had already allegedly admitted to preparing an assassination attempt "on the instructions of the SBU" for a reward of 1.5 million rubles "for each murder."
