The suicide bomber “had no father, his uncle was in a care home, while his mother neglected him,” Kadyrov wrote on his page on a social networking site.
“Courage and professionalism of policemen prevented major casualties among the population,” Kadyrov said at a session with top police officials in the region earlier on Monday, adding that he had ordered to put them forward for a decoration.
He expressed gratitude to thousands of Russian and foreign nationals who offered condolences and expressed support for republic’s fight against such crimes.
At the initiative of the head of the regional fund named after Akhmat-Khadzhi Kadyrov, Aimani Nesiyevna, the families of the killed policemen will get one million rubles each. The injured police officials will also be entitled to aid.
The explosion went off at about 5 pm, Moscow time, on Sunday. Police officers found a home-made explosive device on a man walking through a metal detector at a scene of mass festivities in central Grozny. The terrorist blew himself up as the police tried to arrest him.
An investigation is underway. The terrorist has been preliminarily identified as a resident of Grozny’s Staropromyslovsky district, who had been missing since he had left home two months ago. The man was killed in the blast.
