Recruiters of militants of the Islamic State organization showed up in the Khabarovsk region of the Russian Federation. It was reported by Khamza Kuznetsov, the head of the regional social movement of Muslims ‘Sodruzhestvo’, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the Russian media.

“According to my friends in the law enforcement structures, in the Khabarovsk region has been already opened a criminal investigation into the recruitment for the Islamic state. A native of the Central Asian Republic is suspected,” Kuznetsov said to news agency Interfax.

He noted that there had already been registered many attempts to recruit young Muslims.

“Migrants without work were offered big money. The emissaries promised the Muslim migrants a month salary amounting to 50 thousand rubles,” he said.

However, so far, there is no official confirmation of the fact of opening a criminal case into the recruitment.

It should be noted that the ISIS militants are notable for cruelty, committing mass murders of civilians in virtue of their religious fanaticism.
