“Though the investigators know the name of the terrorist, we will not give it today, as investigation and operative search work is underway now to establish and arrest the organisers and the accomplices of the terrorist act,” Markin noted.
The official said investigators of the main department of the Russian Investigation Committee together with operatives of the Federal Security Service and the Interior Ministry had solved the crime committed at Domodedovo airport on January 24.
“I particularly note that the terrorist act was committed in the international arrivals hall not accidentally. According to the investigators’ version, it was aimed first of all against foreign citizens,” Markin said.
The investigators are ready to make public the results of the investigation into another terrorist crime. All the persons involved in the explosion that took place in a hotel room at the sport shooting club located at Golovachev Street in Moscow on December 31, 2010, are identified, Markin said.
