According to the agency, the uncle of the defendants Jurakhon Azimov works as a security guard in Penza city.

«The other day my brother Jurakhon went to the bank to transfer money. But he was told that his passport was invalid, and said to apply to the Federal Migration Service. When he came there, he was told that he had been deprived of his Russian citizenship by a local court decision. His daughter — me niece was also deprived of citizenship," father of the arrested young people Akhral Azimov told.

At the same time, Akhral Azimov added that he had not yet received any documents on depriving him of his Russian citizenship.
