GROZNY, December 16. /TASS/. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has dismissed reports of Turkish media on assassination attempt upon his life, his press service said on Wednesday.

"This information has no proof but different media circulated the report. They are still discussing and circulating this topic."
According to the Chechen leader, Turkey’s media published a fake assassination attempt report over his principal opinion on the position of Turkish authorities’ on the downing of the Russian Su-24 bomber on November 24.
