Franz Klintsevich, deputy chairperson of the defense commission of the upper house of the Russian parliament, cast doubt on the ISIS link. He said”I doubt it. It’s impossible to tell if this is just PR or not. I don’t believe (the Surgut stabbings) have anything to do with ISIS, “he told Govorit Moskva radio station.
