Now ISIS is attempting to strike fear into Russia. A recent ISIS propaganda video shows beheading of a Russian spy by an Jihadi swine.
Captain Yevgeny Petrenko is the Russian who is in the photograph. He has been in custody since September. In the video he tells his countrymen to stop bombing Syria. There was a video released in September where he was wearing the same thing. The white badge on his right breast reads "infidel."
Per Fox News:
“I was supposed to infiltrate the special services of the caliphate and the leadership of the caliphate,” Petrenko said. “One of my orders was to gain access to Omar al-Shishani or to his circle. But during this I was discovered and arrested by the security services of the caliphate.”
The unidentified man who murders Petrenko speaks Russian, and may be one of thousands of fighters from the former Soviet Union who’ve flocked to join ISIS. Russia is also plagued more directly by Islamic terror carried out by groups from the mostly-Muslim caucus regions. Most recently, 15 people were killed when militants detonated a bomb on a St. Petersburg subway train on April 3.
ISIS Propaganda Video Shows Russian Beheaded

This video has no real impact on Russia and they will continue their part in the Syrian War. They have been a part of it since 2015. They continue to defend Assad as well as his government.
The disgusting video can be seen here. Viewer discretion is advised.
It remains to be seen what kind of response Putin will have to this video. This was a very successful spy who had infiltrated jihadist groups in Syria, Turkey and Caucasus. Once infiltrating the Islamic State ranks, his main task what to befriend Omar Al-Shishani.
During this mission his cover was blown and ISIS took the opportunity to behead him for propaganda purposes.
