Istok (Russian: ИСТОК, meaning "The Source") was the title of a Russian-language online magazine published by the Islamic State (ISIL/ISIS/IS) and released by Al-Hayat Media Center.[1]

As of late 2016, Istok had apparently been supplanted by Rumiyah.[2]


The magazine issued four issues, starting from Rajab 1436 AH to Rajab 1437 AH, before it was replaced by a Rumiyah magazine.

Issue Data Pags
1 Rajab 1436 AH 23
2 Shawwal 1436 AH 44
3 Safar 1437 AH 70
4 Rajab 1437 AH 42
