MOSCOW, December 3 /TASS/. Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of Chechnya, has pledged to kill IS militants who executed his fellow Chechen, allegedly a citizen of Russia, for working for Russian security services.
"The Chechens know and remember it, and they will not leave it unpunished," Kadryov told journalists on Thursday. "We are going to send them to glory and give them a one-way ticket," the Chechen leader clarified.
"The man is a Chechen who was beheaded. There are confirmed facts, which I do not believe, that he used to work for someone. Judging from how he spoke and sat, I think that someone had just set him up," Kadyrov said.
He promised to study the execution video.
A video showing the execution allegedly of a Russian national by IS militants who accused him of working for the Russian security services appeared in the Internet a bit earlier.
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov was greatly impressed by President Putin’s annual state of the nation address to the Russian Federal Assembly (parliament) on Thursday.
He said that Putin had touched upon the most urgent issues ranging from fight against terrorism to social problems. "Being our national leader, he focused on all problem issues," Kadyrov added.
"I was impressed," the Chechen leader concluded.
Chechnya fully supports Putin’s anti-terrorism plans and is ready to fulfill any presidential order.
