GROZNY, December 5. /TASS/. Chechnya’s leader Ramzan Kadyrov said that Akhmat, a brother of late warlord Doku Umarov, was behind the terrorist attack in Grozny on December 4.
“There is evidence that Doku Umarov’s brother has financed, organized and so bears responsibility for the attack,” Kadyrov told reporters on Friday. “Russia’s law enforcement agencies must demand his extradition from Turkey.”
Kadyrov said Umarov’s brother had deceived eleven militants who infiltrated Grozny. They were told that their goal was to reach Grozny and to open fire as another 400 gunmen who were allegedly staying in the city would join them.
Kadyrov said that all eleven militants were killed in the operation and later identified.
Umar Kadyrov, a close relative of Chechnya’s head Ramzan Kadyrov, was killed in the anti-terrorist operation in Grozny, Kadyrov wrote on his page of a social network on Friday.
“The events in Grozny echoed with pain in the hearts of all Chechens and millions of Russian citizens,” he said. “I deliberately refrained from speaking about a heroic death of my close relative Umar Kadyrov who was only 22. But he lived a bright life for Allah, for Islam and for his people.”
Family of a militant who commits a murder will be expelled from Chechnya without the right to return, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov wrote on one of his official pages in social networks.
“If a militant in Chechnya kills a policeman or any other person, the militant’s family will be immediately expelled from Chechnya without the right to return. Their house will be pulled down together with the foundation,” Kadyrov said, noting that he would not allow anybody to spill blood in Chechnya.
Earlier on Friday, Kadyrov held a meeting with ministers, regional administration chiefs and the heads of internal affairs departments where he put up an extremely tough but fair condition.
Kadyrov’s strong reaction must have come in the wake of the Thursday’s terrorist attack in Grozny.
A group of unidentified gunmen moving in three cars attacked a traffic police checkpoint in Grozny in the early hours on Thursday. After that, the terrorists sneaked into the local Press House where the editorial offices of the republic’s newspapers, Internet publications and federal media outlets are located. Chechen law enforcers blocked the Press House building and launched a security operation in central Grozny. As a result, 11 terrorists were neutralized.
