UPDATE 4/24 1:38 PM: Here is an English translation of the below video message:

I, Astemir Mamishev, Mujahid of the central sector of the combined Wilayah KBK, under the leadership of Amir Ubaydullah (ha) – the Amir of this sector – address to the ‘Black Hawks’ gang. I want to remind them of my Protector, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, about Allah (swt), against whom you are aiming your efforts. And truely, you lost at the very moment you started, and your acts will not bring you any success in this world. And you will only find the fire of hell in the Hereafter, Insha’Allah
I testify before Allah that those ‘measures’ – that you have taken to intimidate me and to make me renounce to the Jihad in the way of Allah – are useless and futile. By Allah, I am determined to raise the word of Allah on this earth. Like any other Mujahid who came out in this path. Insha’Allah, we kill, and will [continue to] kill you, as much as Allah allows us. Yes, I do not care about what happens to my family, but be that as it may be, even if you kill my whole family, I will not stop, Insha’Allah. But this doesn’t mean that I do not like them, that I do not love my family. I simply know that this is a test from Allah, both for me and for them. What I do, I do it for the sake of Allah (swt), not for the sake of my family. In any case, I am convinced that you will not harm them more than what Allah has prescribed [for them]. By going on the path of Jihad, we left our families in the care of Allah, and verily Allah is the best protector.
I do not know what you’ve talked about when you said that you were ‘on my trail’ and the trail of [Ratmir] Shameyev (may Allah preserve him), and that we will ‘not see you coming’. As for you, it’s up to our intelligence services-Mukhabarat to identify you. I will not bluff you, as you did. Insha’Allah it’s only a matter of time. And when we shall meet you, Insha’Allah, we shall see under whose feet the ground will burn, Insha’Allah. You are just pathetic minions of Satan, AudhuBillah. Verily, Allah (swt) said in the Quran: “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah , and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of Taghut. So fight against the allies of Satan. Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak” (Surat An-Nisā’ : 76). I also want to say to this dog (1), who sits masked and tries to threaten the Mujahideen : if you’re a man, then show your face. Subhan’Allah, you don’t looks like a defender of the fatherland – of our fatherland. Be a man, show your face. Subhan’Allah, I am sitting here [and] you can see my face. Insha’Allah, may Allah allows us to meet you, identify and – Insha’Allahu Rahman – destroy you.

And as to me personally, yes, on the basis of what I said, I think that my position on your so-called threat is already clear. Insha’Allah it’s not only my position but the position of each Mujahid directly. Each to whom you try to threaten their family or anything else. Insha’Allah, it will all be in vain, we are determined. Insha’Allah, we killed and we will kill [you], as Allah (swt) said it in the Quran. And as long as we are alive, Insha’Allah as we long as we can hold guns in our hands, yes, as long as our hearts beat, we will kill you, Insha’Allah. May Allah humiliates the infidels by our hands, the hands of the Mujahideen and those who try to help them.

To all brothers and sisters who are worry for us, who make Du’aa for us all, may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon you. JazakAllahu Khayran for your support, Insha’Allah. All is said, I have finished.

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar!

On 03 Rabi’ al-Awwal, 1432 AH, corresponding to February 06, 2011, at the United Province of Kabarda, Balkaria and Karachay of the Caucasus Emirate.

Due to the current situation, provoked by the hysterical statements (1) of the infidel “Government of the KB Republic,” headed by the puppet Kanokov, and because of possible attacks against ordinary Muslims and the families of Mujahideen, I, the Wali of the United Wilayah of Kabarda, Balkaria and Karachay, order the following:

1. To bring into full combat readiness all groups and units of Mujahideen who are wintering or who are active, in order to take the adequate measures to stop aggression against innocent Muslims, as well as families of the Mujahideen.
2. To use all the reserve, units and mobile groups to identify and suppress the activities of the people engaged in the acts of provocation mentioned above.
3. The Mukhabarat (intelligence services) divisions on the field must collect new informations and complement to the already available informations on the places of residence, location and movement of the family members of the so-called “Head of the KB Republic”, “government”, “Heads” of districts administration, towns, villages, family members of the “anti-terrorism committee” district officials, for further retaliatory strikes against those responsible of the provocations against Muslims.
4. To punish in the most stringent way, the participants in these provocations and their accomplices, in accordance with the verse: «Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors.» (Surat Al-Baqarah : 190).
5. To not to harm the families of the simple “law enforcers” (district police ‘ROVD’, militarized security guard ‘VOHR’ (2), Traffic Safety Inspectorate ‘GIBDD’ (3), etc…) who are not involved in attacks against Muslim families.
6. All the so-called “peaceful” Muslims who have no ties with the Mujahideen must, by all available means and methods, prevent the implementation of this criminal policy – imposed by the infidels and their supporters among the hypocrites – against the families of the Mujahideen.
7. The Amirs of all sectors, groups and units must report in the shortest time about their level of readiness for their task, through the existent communication channels.
The Wali of the United Wilayah of KBK, Abdullah.

Translation from IslamDin by the Kavkaz-Jihad blog.

(1) On February 1st, Kanokov announced new measures ‘to fight extremism’ including ‘increasing of the pressures’ on the families of the Mujahideen. Such ‘reprisal measures’ are already applied on large scale in all the Wilayah of the CE. These measures includes: abduction of the Mujahideen’s relatives, destruction of their family’s houses, social exculsion, harassments of various forms, etc… Others similar statements were made in early February. This Omra is the answer to these statements. Kanokov also advocated the creation of local ethnic militia to fight the Mujahideen, as it has being done in Dagestan since the November of the last year and in Nokhchicho since a long time.
(2) Related to the ‘Defense Ministry’, deployed to defend various locations.
(3) Almost similar to the ‘DPS’ – the police traffic.
