ISIS Declares Governorate in Russia’s North Caucasus Region

"Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov subsequently claimed on April 22 that ISIS is Russia’s “greatest enemy,” ranked above China or NATO.  The Russian government will likely use the announcement of Wilayat Qawqaz as a justification to vigorously stamp out separatist sentiment in southern Russia. This may counterproductively fuel popular discontent and militant recruitment within the region. Russia also may use the development as a pretext to increase its involvement in Syria and Iraq, where it has recently equipped the Iraqi Security Forces with new supplies of Russian anti-tank rockets."

Meanwhile, Uighur separatists acted up in China killing some police or military

The groundwork is being laid for Russia and China to become major players in
the Middle East. Even if the four headed leopard turns out to be Kurdistan, become
an independent  nation or perhaps cooperative between four Kurdistans which becomes
a regional power, this would likely happen as the result of Russian and maybe
Chinese  action.
