MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. The Kremlin judges by earlier statements of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov that he will work the way the president orders him, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.
"Ramzan Kadyrov has said many times that he is a rather consistent and resolute member of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s circle of allies. In this case, he plans to continue working as the country’s president orders him. He did not say any other thing, and we judge by this. Ramzan continues serving as the republic’s acting head," Peskov said.
In the interview with Rossiya 1 TV channel on Sunday, Kadyrov said he wanted to vacate his office as it’s high time that the republic’s leader be changed. He noted that it is up to the country’s leadership to decide about Chechnya’s future head. Anyway, in his words, "there are several persons who can 100% do this job perfectly."
