GROZNY, June 10 (Itar-Tass) —— The head of the Chechen republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, is worried over more frequent conflicts involving Chechnya-born youths. At a meeting with State Duma member Adam Delimkhanov he voiced his indignation over such conduct by young Chechens.
“This sort of behavior by young people is outrageous. They may quarrel over caf· tables, over a place to park a car, or they my just dislike somebody’s look,” he said.
“Such conflicts, in his opinion happen because some young people choose glamorous lifestyles. Idle men try to find a way out for their overflowing energy. In many cases Chechnya-born people are pointed to as the culprits of brawls. Their indecent behavior evokes a negative attitude to the Chechen people. They must have forgotten the days when they were unable to go out into the street due to continued searches and identity checks. If they wish to have a fight, may they go to the boxing ring and settle scores there,” Kadyrov said.
He pointed out that each individual is obliged to honor the laws and rules of behavior of the region or the country where he or she lives. Kadyrov asked Delimkhanov to hold meetings with representatives of Chechen communities and tell them that such behavior by young people is impermissible.
“Form authoritative delegations that will be visiting Russia’s territories and meeting with people of Chechen descent and the indigenous population. May they warn our fellow Chechens that we are not going to put up with such behavior by young people. The Chechen Republic’s leadership will no longer provide any assistance to those who may be detained for hooliganism. Go and ask them – do they want to get back into the days when we were searched at every roadblock, or to keep moving freely about the country and to enjoy the respect and hospitality of other peoples? The heads of diasporas must keep a close watch on whether young people behave themselves. Sometimes the conduct of just one person forms the public’s attitude to a whole ethnic group. We all know the price that we paid for peace and the efforts that had to be exerted to regain the lost respect for the Chechen people,” Kadyrov said.
“These days the Chechens are free to move about the whole territory of the country, to live outside it, to work and study abroad and to develop their businesses. The Chechen people have made their choice. We are people of Russia and we wish to live in peace with other ethnic groups in multi-ethnic and multi-religious Russia. We, Russian citizens, are obliged to defend the constitution of Russia and to respect Russian laws.
Kadyrov offered the Chechen authorities’ assistance to young people who have graduated from Russian colleges and universities in finding jobs in Chechnya.
“We have many well-educated people who are resident in other regions of the country, but are unable to find employment. Everybody who is eager to return home can count on our support and assistance in getting employment in keeping with training,” he said.
