Islamic State has released a five-minute video threatening Russia with attacks in the near future and vowing to bring the Kremlin down. The video is awash with graphic images and clips from previously released execution footage.
The clip was released by Islamic State’s (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) foreign language media division, the Al-Hayat Media Center. According to the SITE monitoring group, threats of attacks on Russia are being made in revenge for Russia’s anti-IS ops in Syria. The jihadists claim they will bring down the Kremlin, create a caliphate in different parts of Russia such as Crimea, Caucasus, the Urals and the republic of Tatarstan, also adding that all non-Muslims will have to pay a special tax.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia's security agencies will look into the video, which also promises attacks on Europe.
"I do not know the authenticity of this video or the authenticity of these sources, but in any case no doubt this will be material for review by our special [security] services," Peskov told journalists on Thursday.https://www.rt.com/news/321790-islamic-state-threats-russia/
