The evidence gathered by the Main Investigations Directorate over North Caucasian Federal District of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation was found by court to be sufficient to sentence resident of the Surgut, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District-Yugra Narbek Ozganbaev. He was found guilty of committing an offence under Part 1 of Article 205.1 of the Criminal Code of Russia (financing terrorism).

Having direct intention to facilitate activities of the indicated organization by its financing, the perpetrator, upon request of the latter, transferred money to bank cards numbers provided by the indicated person.

All circumstances of the committed offense were established in interaction of the Central Apparatus of the Federal Security Service, Tyumen Regional Department of the Federal Security Service and Centre E of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs over the North-Caucasian Federal District.

The Central District Military Court found Ozganbaev guilty of the offences he was charged with and sentenced him to 2 years of imprisonment in a general regime penal colony.
