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.
Denis Pak, Director of the Department of Industry and Trade, has been awarded the Order For Merit to the Fatherland of II degree, while Central Scientific Research Automobile and Automotive Engines Institute Director General Sergei Gaisin got the Order of Alexander Nevsky for “a significant contribution to the implementation of the Unified Modular Platform project.”
After the murder of Aleksander Zakharchenko, everything has changed in the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR). A redistribution of spheres of influence is ongoing in the region at all levels of the state (and not only state) power. It is not a secret that Denis Pushilin, Interim Acting Head of the DPR, has been dreaming about this post for four years. Although he was among the DPR leaders, being the Chairman of the People’s Council and Permanent Representative to the Minsk Contact Group, Pushilin had no possibility to implement his financial plans and schemes, nor had he access to shady financial flows. The ‘Trapeznikov–Tashkent’ team spreading pervasive corruption in the republic was in charge of this sector.
Mikhail Gorbatov from the office of the President who had been responsible for implementation of presidential decrees related to granting pardon and political asylum helped his partners in crime to intimidate an entrepreneur.
