The "Islamic State" (IS), banned in Russia by the court and recognized as a terrorist grouping, has disseminated a video calling for a jihad in Russia. The video posted on the Internet contains threats against Russian citizens and an appeal to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the "Reuters" reports.
