IS threats not to derail Russia’s fight against terror

Moscow, Aug 1 (IANS) The Islamic State (IS) militant group’s threats against Russia can not influence Moscow’s stance on the fight against terrorism, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.

“Such threats are not able in any way to impact Russia’s and President [Vladimir] Putin’s consistent policy on the fight against international terrorism, which of course will continue in all directions,” Sputnik News quoted Peskov as saying.

Following the terrorist organisation’s purported video urging jihad in Russia, the Kremlin “treats such publications with the necessary attention”, he said.

“Certainly, the special services responsible for anti-terrorist operation and security take such publications into account. Surely the Ministry of Defence overseeing the Aerospace Forces’ operation in Syria are taking the necessary measures,” Peskov said.
