A native of Nalchik, Mikhail Zhigunov was recognized as a member of the terrorist community that operated in correctional colony-2 in Kalmykia. The Southern District Military Court sentenced him to imprisonment for five years and six months in a special regime colony.

As reported by Moskovsky Komsomolets in Kalmykia, in 2013, a native of Dagestan Shakhban Hasanov, who was serving a sentence for illegal arms trafficking in IK-2, created a terrorist organization here. More than 100 prisoners were involved in it. The organizer was later killed during a special operation in Dagestan.

As the investigation found out, 31-year-old Mikhail Zhigunov, who was serving a sentence for drug possession in IK-2, joined the community in March 2015. He was in it until October 2017, when he was released after serving his sentence.

The case of Zhigunov, who was accused of a crime under Part 2 of Article 205.4 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (organizing a terrorist community and participating in it), was brought to court in early July this year. The Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don found him guilty of a crime and sentenced him to five years and six months in a special regime colony.

Recall that several dozen people are involved in the case of the terrorist community in IK-2, including residents of Dagestan, Kabardino-Balkaria and the Stavropol Territory. The head of the colony Pavel Bataev and his former deputy Artur Tsamaev were detained on suspicion of patronizing terrorists.

On October 26, one of the accused was sentenced – a native of Dagestan, Said Suleimanov, received five years in a strict regime colony under the same article as Zhigunov.
