Former MSU student Varvara Karaulov (Alexander Ivanov), convicted for attempting to join a banned terrorist organization “Islamic state” (IG), delivered to the colony. It is reported RIA Novosti with reference to the lawyer of the girl Sergey Budashkina.

The Moscow district military court sentenced Karaulov to 4.5 years in a General regime colony in December 2016. The sentence came into force on 22 March.

Karaulov was arrested on 28 October 2015. She was 19 years old. By the time of the arrest she changed her name and became the Alexandra Ivanova.

The girl was detained June 4, 2015 while attempting to illegally cross the Turkish-Syrian border. Together with her were taken into custody 13 citizens of Russia, who wanted to join ISIS. The criminal case against the student started only six months later. Karaulov said that he went to Syria to beloved and had not intended to participate in Jihad.
