ISIS has turned their attention to another world power: Russia.
In a recently released video, the Islamic State launches threats at Vladimir Putin and Russia, vowing war in Chechnya and the Caucasus.
In the video, an ISIS fighter is seen in a military jet saying:
“This message is for you, Vladimir Putin! These are the aircraft you sent to Bashar [Assad], and we’re going to send them to you. Remember that!…We will with the consent of Allah free Chechnya and all of the Caucasus! The Islamic State is here and will stay here, and it will spread with the grace of Allah!…Your throne has already been shaken, it is under threat and will fall with our arrival [in Russia]. … We’re already on our way with the of Allah!”

A video released by Al Arabiya and reportedly filmed in a seized airport in the Syrian province of Raqqa features an Islamic State fighter seated in a military jet, saying: “This message is for you, Vladimir Putin! These are the aircraft you sent to Bashar [Assad], and we’re going to send them to you. Remember that!”
The voice of a Russian speaker can also be heard in the video, describing the jets seized by Islamic State fighters. “This is Russian technology,” he says.
The Islamic State has openly declared war on the U.S., driving its point home by having beheaded two U.S. journalists in as many weeks. This is the first time members of the group have personally taunted the Russian president.
