Kadyrov explains why he sends Chechens to Syria
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov explained the purposes for sending Chechen troops to Aleppo, as well as the tasks which fall to them as part of the service in the military police battalion.
According to Kadyrov, the Chechens who have been sent to serve in Aleppo along with a military police battalion of the Russian Defense Ministry will "establish contact" with the local Syrian population. To do this, they have undergone special training.
Ramzan Kadyrov also said that the main task of the police officers in Syria is the preservation of peace in the liberated territory.
"Tatars, Russians, Chechens – together, they protect the Muslims there. They prevent different denominations from setting at variance among themselves," Kadyrov stressed. At the same time, he added that security forces sent to Syria possess not only theory but also practice for finding a "common language with people."
Let us also add that in January, Ramzan Kadyrov had already informed the media that the Chechen troops were bearing service as part of a military police battalion in Aleppo. Back then, Mufti of Chechnya Salah-Hadji Mezhiev and State Duma deputy Adam Delimkhanov held a meeting with them.
A native of Grozny Lors Khamiev, who has served several years for preparing an attempt on Head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov, has been arrested by court along with another defendant. They have already been charged with the murder of Azerbaijani Garib Orudzhev during the night of February 15.
The high-profile shootout in Oko Tower in November 2017 – at least, 40 gunshots were fired there – has led to unexpected consequences a year later. Seven high-ranked investigators of the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) have submitted a collective resignation letter, and the inquest into the incident in Moscow City International Business Center was resumed. In fact, this chain of events resembles another firefight that had occurred in 2015 near Elements Restaurant on Rochdelskaya street, Moscow and also resulted in a number of high-profile criminal cases against senior ICR officials and incarceration of ‘thief № 1’ Shakro Molodoy.
