On March 25, 2024, the Al-Azaim Foundation, a media outlet linked to the Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP), published an English-language poster threatening to carry out attacks against Russians, including President Vladmir Putin.[1]

The poster capitalized on the March 22 attack in Moscow, which the Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility for without specifying in its three statements which regional branch was involved in carrying out the deadly attack.

Titled "Threat To Brutal Russians, Including Putin," the poster featured the image of a masked man brandishing a knife. The English text on the poster reads:

"Beware! Do not think that we do not have the ability to take revenge on you for our imprisoned brothers. We proved it to you with Friday's attack that the mujahideen of the Islamic state can punish you for all your horrors biiznillah [Allah willing]. The blood of the Islamic Ummah is still loan on you. Broadcasting videos of prisoners being tortured by you has increased the thirst of thousands of brothers for your blood. This time we will give such blows that your future generations will remember, and it will make forget past pains and wounds from you. Yes! Hard very hard, deadly, bloody, painful, burners and the destroyers blow! Wait! You will be massacred all together with your children and women. Very soon... Insha'Allah [Allah willing]."
