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.
"It turned out that during my trip to Moscow leading Turkish TV channels reported that I was wounded in an assassination attempt upon my life," Kadyrov was quoted as saying. "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.
"I stated then and I repeat that the downing was treacherous," Kadyrov said. "They did not like the statement. Now they are deliberately spreading the fake report on the alleged attempt upon my life. Of course, they were pursuing certain goals."
