The revolutionaries—and jihadists could be regarded as revolutionaries of the sort—often had two aspect of their approach to the reality. First, it is vision of the doctrine, often rigid and dogmatic. The other side is practical, and here jihadists changed their approached to the reality.In the beginning of post-Soviet era jihadists were still influenced by the long traditions of Russian nationalism incorporated in Soviet ideology. According to these tradition, Russia plays the special role in the world history. In the view of jihadists, it was the territory of the Former USSR, which shall play the role of the leader of the global anti-Western revolt. Still, as time progress, Russia lost its centrality in the mind of jihadists, and it became just one of the places of the global struggle. Some of them think that the space of Russia shall be used for creation of sort of a new edition of Pakistan where ethnicities are downplayed, and Islam is the major way of identity.
