NOTE: From the Kavkaz Center:
The Kavkaz Center editorial staff received via e-mail a statement from the Caucasian Martyrs’ Brigades Riyad-us-Saliheen. The statement says that recent explosion in front of the Gazprom HQ in Moscow was a deliberate demonstration of capabilities of this sabotage unit.
KC published the statement without cuts and changes, keeping intact the style and terminology.
In the Name of Allah the Merciful, the Compassionate!
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, peace and blessings be upon the Prophet Muhammad, his family, his companions and upon those who followed them in Jihad until the Day of Judgment.
Under the order of Doku Abu Usman, Emir of Caucasus Muslims, the Mujahideen of the Martyrs’ Brigades Riyad-us-Saliheen carried out an operation in Moscow against the central office of Gazprom, within the framework of the general spring-and-summer actions on the territory of Russia.
The aim of this operation was to show Kremlin businessmen of Russia, and the leaders among them, represented by the leadership of the largest Russian company that, despite assurances of Russian leadership of a victory in a so-called “anti-terrorist operation” that the war is not over, but on the contrary, it has come to your homes and your comfortable offices.
Despite attempts by your authorities to attribute it to banal hooliganism, you know perfectly well that hundreds of bolts in a directed blast came exactly to your office.
Your Kremlin bosses blatantly lie, trying to attribute this explosion to gangster feuds, as they lie about fires that, which covered the entire central Rusnya, occur by themselves.
We remind you that until Russia and your bosses leave the Muslims of the Caucasus alone, sabotages (explosions, fires, etc.) in Russia will continue, Insha’Allah.
Our aim in this operation was not to kill people. We just showed that we can carry out sabotage operations against well-protected areas, and that we can strike almost anywhere in Russia.
The whole central Russia is now declared a zone of our counter-terrorist operation, and if checkpoints in Moscow are now placed only on the outskirts of the city and around it, then we intend to force you to place checkpoints and declare curfews inside your most important city.
So that Muscovites feel in their own skins how Muslims in the Caucasus live for many years. We suspect that it would exert a “good” influence on attractiveness of investments in Russia.
We would also like to warn again all Muslims and all sympathizers of the struggle of Caucasian peoples, living in Moscow and other cities Rusnya, to leave them because it will be only get worse in the future, Insha’Allah. Fires and strikes on all economy targets helping the Kremlin murderers in remain in power will increase.
Everybody who owns even a most miserable apartment in Moscow could sell it and buy a property in almost every country in the world. Moreover, anyone who rents an apartment in Moscow could comfortably live for that money almost anywhere in the earth:
We remind Muslims the hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) about life among unbelievers:
“I have nothing to do with a Muslim living among the polytheists”.
“I am free from any Muslim who lives among polytheists. The fire of each group should not be visible to the other”.
“He who lives among the polytheists is one of them”.
Moscow and St. Petersburg are the nerve centers of Russian economy, and we intend, this way or another, to continue to attack these centers until Russia ends its occupation of the Caucasus.
Following this warning, we do not want to hear any more accusations that innocent people and especially Muslims suffer from sabotages, because we have repeatedly warned you about the need to leave this cursed place.
Ordinary Russian people should know that all these misfortunes fell upon them because of ambitions of one person – Putin, who has been offered in due time an honorable peace and security for the southern borders of Russia, but he chose to make ordinary people pay in blood for his ambitions, hiding himself behind a whole army of body-guards and tons of armor.
It is obvious for any fair-minded person that the Mujahideen of the Caucasus are a force that is fighting not only for the liberation of the Caucasus, but actually brings freedom to Russian people from the slavery to the KGB yoke.
While Russians die out by 1.5 million people per a year, bank accounts of the ruling regime and controlled oligarchs are only growing, despite the crisis. KGB agents and their business proteges grow fat, while the masses get poorer, and even crumbs from master’s table are destroyed by inflation.
In fact, any sane Russian should strongly support the Mujahedeen of the Caucasus and oppose the KGB junta with arms, as guerrillas in Maritime Territory (in Russian Far East – KC) do, and other guerrilla groups repeat in other parts of Russia.
Any sane Russian must also understand that the attempt to keep the Caucasus under the occupation is an Utopian and totally hopeless task, and that these attempts are only destroying their country from within.
Your leaders are spending billions of your money for the preserving puppet regimes, like that of Kadyrov, etc., rather than to increase salaries and pensions. However, sabotages and fires across Russia are only increasing.
Your rulers can not intelligibly explain why the Caucasus should be a part of Russia, despite the fact that Caucasians, religiously and ethnically, fundamentally differ from Russians, and also have a long history of a fierce fighting against Russian invaders?
After all, even your brothers in faith and blood, the Slavs, Ukrainians and Belarusians, do not want to have anything to do with you, except oil and gas, which you also actually steal from the peoples of Siberia and the Caucasus.
And do not be deceived by the number of so-called Kadyrovites and other traitors and puppets, who sold their faith and their homeland for cars and money. They betrayed their own people and their religion, and they will betray you, as soon as conditions are ripe for betrayal, and you know it.
In conclusion, we gave praise to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, the Creator of all things, by Whose Will everything happens on earth and in heaven, and for Whom we took the path of Jihad, to extol His Word.
We also congratulate all Muslims with the upcoming holy month of Ramadan, we wish all the strengthening of their Iman and acceptance of their worship. O Muslims, we took the path of Jihad! Make Dua for your Mujahideen brothers and ask Allah for help and early victory over the infidels.
