GROZNY, October 7. /TASS/. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said Wednesday that Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to the Ukrainian interior minister, who suggested publishing personal data of Russian military in Syria, could be connected with the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization, banned in Russia.
"There were reports that say Gerashchenko could be involved in recruiting youth to that terrorist organization. Anyway, we are not going to leave unattended threats directed against our pilots. And the response will be sensitive. We have all forces and means for that," Kadyrov told journalists in Grozny.
"If someone is looking for addresses, I report that I am the first pilot of Russian aviation who delivered a strike on the positions of the Iblis State [Islamic State]," he said. "And now I am behind the wheel in Syrian skies. My address and phone number are known."
Kadyrov said he hopes Gerashchenko’s statements will be taken into account by "the sons of those who were shot dead or burned alive by terrorists in Syria.".
