ISIS are spreading the locations of Russian embassies in a sick bid to incite more attacks on officials.
Jihadis disseminated a PDF containing the addresses and contact information of Russian embassies following the shock slaughter of Moscow’s envoy to Ankara and the attack on a bustling Christmas market in Berlin on Monday.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered his secret service to increase his security detail at home and abroad in response to the attacks.
Russian news wires quoted Putin as telling security bosses: “I ask the special services to take additional measures to ensure security inside Russia and outside, to raise the security of Russian institutions and employees abroad.”
His directive comes just one day after the killing of Russian ambassador Andrei Karlov by a Turkish policeman who could be heard shouting “Allahu Akbar”, in what has since been described as a “terrorist act” by the Kremlin.
Acting in response to his envoy’s killing on Monday, Putin has already ordered his top diplomat and spy chiefs to look into increasing security for Russian diplomats around the world.
In the wake of Andrei Karlov’s death, the Kremlin has sent investigators to Turkey to probe into the murder.
