Pavel Pechenkin, a member of the Buinaksk ring operating in Dagestan who was born in the town of Volzhsk in the Republic of Mari El, is suspected of the Volgograd railroad terminal bombing, a source from the law enforcement authorities said.

He said Pechenkin joined the Dagestani militants in spring 2012.

"Pavel's parents - Nikolai and Fanaziya - came to Dagestan in September 2013 and searched for him in the town of Buinaksk and the suburbs. The search was unsuccessful and they made a video address to their son, who had adopted the Islamic name of Ansar ar-Rusi. The parents failed to find their son and returned home," the source said.

According to the parents, Pavel Pechenkin was an ER nurse in his home town.

The suicide bomber will be definitively identified in DNA tests.

Pavel's father, Nikolai, donated his blood for the DNA test on Monday morning.
