ISIS on Thursday purportedly released a video and audio statement threatening to attack Russia “very soon.”
In the nearly five-minute long video, a chant in Russian is heard over visual compilations of old ISIS propaganda and generic video of Russian cities and buildings.
The video is entitled “Soon Very Soon the Blood Will Spill like an Ocean” and was posted two weeks after a Russian commercial jet crashed in Egypt, killing 224 people. An ISIS affiliate has claimed it brought down the plane.
The media has not independently verified the video is authentic, but it was posted on ISIS-affiliated social media accounts.
Russian security services are working to verify the authenticity of the video, the country’s state news agency Sputnik reports.
