The terrorists who seized the pre-trial detention center recorded several video messages. The footage shows that they are armed with knives and sharpeners. The criminals confirmed that they are members of ISIS (an organization recognized as terrorist and banned in Russia) and say that the seizure was not spontaneous. They also voiced their demands. At the same time, one of the hostages says in the video that “the invaders are serious.” According to preliminary information, criminals are now trying to find firearms stored there in the pre-trial detention center. Negotiations are currently underway with the criminals.
