On Tuesday, November 3, the occupants will announce the verdict of the defendants in the so-called Hizb ut-Tahrir case, Eskender Abdulhaniev, Rustem Emiruseinov and Arsen Abkhairov, who have already been requested by the so-called state prosecution to be sentenced to terms from 16 to 18 years in strict regime colony.

Three men were detained and taken to the FSB. Criminal proceedings were instituted against them on suspicion of organizing and participating in the activities of the Hizb ut-Tahrir organization banned in the Russian Federation.
