Why is this case in military court?

A Russian military court has convicted three Tajik citizens and one Moldovan citizen on terrorism charges, according to this report.

Human rights jurisprudence strongly disfavors the trial of civilians by military courts. Uganda, Cameroon, Lebanon, Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia, and Pakistan are among the countries that currently violate this principle.
