Enraged president vows to hunt down and 'punish' perpetrators of airline attack wherever they can be found
ISIS has stoked the wrath of Putin.
Receiving confirmation from the head of the FSB that the Metrojet over Sinai was indeed downed by a bomb, a somber but furious Putin spoke to the Russian people about the coming vengeance.
'The murder of our people in Sinai is one of the bloodiest in terms of the number of victims of such crimes. We won't easily wipe away the tears in our hearts and souls. It will stay with us forever. But that will not prevent us from finding and punishing the perpetrators. We should not apply any time limits. We need to know all the perpetrators by name. We will search for them everywhere - wherever they are hiding. We will find them in any spot on the planet and we will punish them', said a very serious-looking Putin.
And as if this dire warning wasn't enough, the enraged president vowed to ratchet up the strikes in Syria so that 'the criminals understand that revenge is unavoidable.'
This is the harshest language Putin has used since he promised to kill Chechens in the 'shithouse' when he served as FSB director.
Combine all of this with the FSB offering $50 million for information on the perpetrators, and it looks like ISIS and its affiliates are set to reap the whirlwind.
