The defendant and Asylzhan Kelmukhambetov formed a local branch of Nurcular in Yekaterinburg in the period from April 2008 to March 2009, the prosecutor said.
Turkish citizens - teachers of an Orenburg medrasah - involved Kelmukhambetov in the illegal activity.
"They spread the ideas of the religious organization amongst Islamic students of medium and higher educational establishments in the regional center," the report said. "They opened medrasah in rented apartments to study books by the Nurcular founder, Turkish author Said Nursi, the organization's modern leader Fethullah Gulen and other extremist books."
Criminal charges against Kelmukhambetov were brought in March 2009, and his accomplice was charged in 2010. However, he escaped from the police.
The Russian Supreme Court declared extremist the international religious movement Nurcular and banned it in Russia on April 10, 2008.
