GROZNY, October 14. /TASS/. Most Chechens who joined the Islamic State terrorist group in Syria have been killed, the head of Russia’s North Caucasus republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, said on Wednesday.
"We contributed to this so that they do not return back to the republic and spill blood of innocent people. We also helped many young people to come from Syria back to peaceful life," Kadyrov said.
Chechen authorities have launched an effort to counter the ideology of terrorism. The special role here is also devoted to spiritual figures. "As a result, this organized and meticulous work has yielded result," he said.
Islamic State is a terrorist group banned in a number of countries, including Russia. Russia’s Aerospace Forces have been carrying out air strikes on IS targets in Syria based on approval of the upper house of the Russian parliament, the Federation Council, to use Russian Armed Forces against this terrorist group.
