GROZNY, February 20. /TASS/. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has denied reports on issuing spiritual and moral passports for young people in the region.
"Some media reported that some new ‘passports’ will be issued for young men in Chechnya. I would like to remind everyone that there is only one passport in our country - the passport of a Russian citizen! All the rest is fiction," Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram page.
According to him, a set of measures is developed in the republic that will ensure close cooperation between the Interior Ministry and the public. "We are confident that they will be effective and save the youth from the influence of extremists and terrorists," the Chechen leader noted.
Some media outlets earlier reported that spiritual and moral passportization of young people would be held in Chechnya alleging that the move had been supported by the republic’s clergy. According to media reports, this measure implies that every young person aged between 14 and 35 who underwent spiritual and moral passportization will receive a document that will include his "personal characteristics, ethnic identity, tribal (teip) and religious affiliation."
