GROZNY, October 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov said he was hopeful that the team of people at the helm of the country will not change after the upcoming presidential elections in Russia and Chechnya will not develop as before.
“The team in the leadership of the country has not changed, and they [Medvedev and Putin] keep going as before,” Kadyrov said on Wednesday, October 5.
He stressed that Chechnya would not deviate from the chosen road: “It is not important at all who will replace whom, whether Putin takes over Medvedev or vice versa. I think nothing will change. We [in Chechnya] will keep going forward as we did before, and keep building a peaceful and prosperous republic and society with a correct spiritual outlook.”
