Speaking at a regional summit meeting of Commonwealth of Independent States in Kazakhstan President of Russian Federation Vladimir Putin stated that about seven thousands jihadi fighters from Russia and the former Soviet Republics are fighting for ISIS ( Islamic State) in Syria.

He also warned Central Asian countries such as Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan that they were at an increased risk of attack from extremist militants flooding those countries from Afghanistan.

Mr Putin urged the leaders of those countries to work together to stop invasion of ISIS terrorists.

Vladimir Putin also proposed to set up a military alliance of ex-Soviet states amid fears of Taliban “spillover” from Afghanistan.

Russian leader described the situation in Afghanistan as “close to critical”.

Mr Putin said:

“ISIS terrorists are gaining more influence and do not hide their plans for further expansion.

“One of their goals is to push into the Central Asian region. It’s important that we are prepared to react to this threat jointly.”
