19-year-old Varvara Karaulova has been reported missing to Moscow law-enforcement bodies. Investigative and search operations gave no results so, the girl was put on an international wanted list.
At the present time Varvara Karaulova’s case files have been passed over to Moscow Main Investigations Directorate of the Russia’s Investigative Committee.
A pre-investigative check was launched in a crime under part 1.1 of article 282.1 of the RF Penal Code (inclination, recruitment or any other involvement of a person in the activity of an extremist community) due to the fact that there is information that Karaulova might have been recruited by unidentified people to be used in the activity of an extremist community.
A procedural decision will be made following the check.
