MOSCOW, December 16 /TASS/. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said on Tuesday that he wanted to quit his high state post and leave for Ukraine’s Donbas region to help the local militias, the NTV channel reported on its website.
Commenting on initiation of criminal proceedings against him in Ukraine and Kiev’s threats to put him on the international wanted list, Kadyrov told NTV’s “Bez Kupyur” (Without Banknotes) program that they could keep wagging their tongues for as long as they liked.
“They can keep saying whatever they like. But I am going to ask the (Russian) president for permission to quit my post in order to go to Donbass to protect the interests of those citizens who are fighting there now,” Kadyrov said.
Ukraine’s Security Service initiated criminal proceedings against Ramzan Kadyrov last week. Kadyrov in turn promised to file criminal lawsuits against Ukrainian deputies Yuri Beryoza, Andriy Levus and Ihor Moiseychuk who have voiced their support for the recent terrorist attack on a traffic police post in Grozny.
In addition to that, those deputies called for stepping up attempts to destabilize the situation in Russia, including Chechnya, Kadyrov wrote on one of his pages in social networks. On December 8, the speaker of Chechen parliament, Dukuvakha Abdurakhmanov, instructed the Committee for Legality, Rule of Law and Security of the Legislative Assembly of the Chechen Republic to start the initiation of a criminal case against Ukraine’s Security Service. He also suggested excluding Ukraine’s Verkhovnaya Rada from the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).
