The EU Police Service has calculated the number of its citizens who have joined a terrorist organization "Islamic State" and unveiled a figure of 7 thousand people.

ISIL terrorists train their new arriving supporters in Syria and Iraq. According to the director of the police department, trained Europeans often return with a view to carry out attacks in large cities.

In turn, Russian President Putin said close to 2.5 thousand Russians have joined the ISIL terrorists.
