GROZNY, September 17. /TASS/. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said on Thursday the Ukrainian president should think twice before making this or that political decision.
"Honestly speaking, I feel sorry for this Mister Poroshenko. He has a host of problems, while he is slapping some sanctions on me. It turns out that Russians are the main enemies of Ukraine. We have always been the first to lend a helping hand to the Ukrainian people," the president of the Russian North Caucasian republic said.
"And we don’t regret this," he posted on his page in a social network, adding that hundreds and thousands of Ukrainians found refuge in Russia amid a war in eastern Ukraine.
"Poroshenko comes and goes, while the people stay. And no matter how the Kiev authorities strain, they will not move Ukraine to America or bring America to Ukraine. We don’t wish this country anything bad, but who will be the first to come to the rescue in the first few hours if, Allah forbid, some tragedy occurs?" he asked.
"Does Poroshenko think to make Ukraine happy by building a wall between the Russian and Ukrainian peoples?" he asked. "One can hardly imagine sillier decrees. Don’t make the Ukrainian citizens laugh, as they are well aware that your decrees are like a soap bubble, and play no role indeed," he said.
"If you think that sanctions against me will influence your bosom friendship with the beloved and inaccessible West, buy a printing house to crank out these decrees in millions," Kadyrov said.
Kadyrov is on Ukrainian president’s black list unveiled on Wednesday.
President Poroshenko signed a decree on Wednesday unveiling sanctions for one year against 388 individuals, including high-ranking officials and journalists from Russia and other countries. All of them are subject to entry ban and also assets freeze in Ukraine.
Poroshenko’s decree says those on the blacklist "threaten national security…promote terrorist activity and violate people’s rights, interests of citizens and the state."
