The trail of Russian terrorist attack against Borussia Dortmund: the case for three million

The case with the recent bombings at a bus Dortmund football club “Borussia”, it seems, is disclosed. And the alleged “terrorist” was detained by police commandos in the land of Baden-württemberg. He was a native of Russia, having German citizenship. While the motive for the bombings was not the idea of “global Jihad” or the “world revolution”, and the banal desire to earn “long Euro” on the stock market.

Recall that on the evening of 11 April in Dortmund ahead of the match of UEFA Champions League near the bus with the players of Borussia, who was riding on the match against AS Monaco, exploded three bombs. Fortunately there were no casualties, but the blast injured defender of the team of Spaniard Marc Bartra and nearby police.

According to Spiegel Online, the explosion of the bus with the players of “Borussia” the consequence suspects the 28-year-old Sergei V. (in the German media it appears that way: Sergej W.), living near tübingen.

While there is reason to think that he did not act out of extremist motives, and solely guided by selfish motives.

Apparently, they decided hoping to capitalize on the devaluation of shares of Borussia Dortmund in the stock option. As I thought of the intruder, the incident with the players was to lead to the collapse of the stock club.

And nobody realized, the attacker decided to translate the arrows on Islamist terrorists, which last year staged a series of terrorist attacks in Germany. For this “pseudo-terrorist” scattered appropriate letter alleged the bombings were carried out “in the name of Allah.” The notes contained threats against athletes, if not closed air force base, Ramstein, and the German air force will not cease to bomb Syria.

The police initially followed the “Islamist trail”. Soon after the explosion in Dortmund was detained 25-year-old Iraqi, suspected of having links with the Islamists. But then law enforcement realized that the “jihadist” version can be a trap thrown by the real culprit – especially since the style of the planted Sergei letters differed from the real “message” of the jihadists. And the experts, which had referred to the newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung came to the conclusion that the text of the letters were most likely written by the person for whom German is the mother tongue, however, contained errors that were supposed to make people think that he wrote this the man for whom German is a second language.

Thought police, however, and homegrown extremists – from leftists to right-wing, and “frostbitten” football fans. It was much more banal: the organizer of the terrorist attack (which, as it turns out, a terrorist attack-it was not) motivated not by political motives, and greed.

German media reported that the man took a consumer loan and exactly on the day of the explosion acquired 15 thousand option certificates valid until June 17, 2017 in the amount of 78 thousand euros needed for the subsequent purchase and sale of securities. In the case of the collapse of the stock price, he could sell them at a fixed rate

“If the shares of the club Borussia Dortmund have fallen dramatically, the benefits could be several times more than the original investment” – explained in the office of the Prosecutor. And some media meets even the figure of 3 million euros – so much would earn in case of success the attacker.

In the planned for “action” day Sergey arrived at the hotel – it employees seemed suspicious then that the guest was calm amid the panic the other guests. While others panicked, he went to the restaurant and serenely ordered a steak, according to Bild. But earlier, he expressed dissatisfaction with the room (Windows were not out on the street), where he settled and moved to another. Apparently, it was from the room on the top floor of the hotel, he brought bombs metal studs, in action by means of remote control.

Detainee charged with attempted murder, causing grievous bodily harm and the implementation of the explosion, said the Prosecutor’s office. It is reported that he had a good electrical engineering skills, which helped him to build bombs.
