Trial resumes for suspected Kvachkov accomplice
Khabarov, a retired colonel, is the former director of the Military Technical Education and Security Institute of Ural Federal University and is credited as the first commandant in the successful Salang mountain pass operation in Afghanistan. In 2011, he was apprehended by investigators in Yekaterinburg on charges of attempted organization of an armed rebellion and recruiting and engaging in terrorist activities, according to Itar-Tass.
On October 24, Khabarov began complaining to jail administrators of heart and lung pain. Initially, prison officials denied Khabarov medical attention due to the conditions of his custody. As his health worsened, Khabarov filed a complaint with the prosecutor's office and was eventually given permission to receive medical care.
Andrei Burmistrov, Khabarov's attorney, said that the prisoner suffered pneumonia earlier in the year and was not given proper medical attention at that time. Burmistrov, however, concedes that his client is healthy enough to stand trial following his November 21 hospital discharge, Itar-Tass reports.
Investigators suspect Khabarov of working with retired GRU military intelligence service colonel Vladimir Kvachkov to organize and carry out a violent uprising in Yekaterinburg that the FSB security service successfully prevented.
