Kadyrov: resignation of Chechen MIA Deputy Head is complete nonsense
The Chechen Head frowns on the media’s appetite for fish stories.
Ramzan Kadyrov has denied the information on Apti Alaudinov’s resignation from the post of the Deputy Head of the Chechen Ministry of Internal Affairs. Previously, Novaya Gazeta cited two sources reporting that Alaudinov had been "asked to resign in view of the recent attack on Grozny." Besides, there is an acute personal conflict between the MIA Deputy Head and Kadyrov.
Sources also informed that the resignation policy might also touch a few senior officials from the Chechen MIA as well as some district MIA chiefs.
"What can I say? This is a complete nonsense, empty talk”, Ramzan Kadyrov wrote on Instagram. Then the Chechen Head said that late on December 28 he had a meeting with Apti Alaudinov and Republic’s MIA Head Ruslan Alkhanov to “tackle the top-priority issues of ensuring security during the holidays.”
Then he praised the effort made by Alkhanov and Alaudinov in the anti-terrorism campaign, their ability to ensure order, stability and security.
"Unfortunately, it’s now a common practice with certain news agencies when a website posts a tale and the others follow suit knowing very well that the news is a fake," said Kadyrov.
Last year's wave of governors' resignations, which temporary termination was announced in November 2017 by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak, will resume soon after March 18. The CrimeRussia figures out who will lose governor's seat.
