MOSCOW, March 26. /TASS/. Russia’s Chechen Republic cannot supply weapons to Mexico as it goes against the Russian legislature, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Thursday, commenting on yesterday’s statements by Chechen Republic’s parliament speaker Dukuvakha Abdurakhmanov.

"Constituent entities of the Russian Federation cannot deliver special equipment [to other countries] or sell special equipment," Peskov said. "This is not in line with the law," he stressed.

Peskov said he does not know the details of Abdurakhamanov’s statements and what prompted such announcements. "They [such statements] have to be coordinated with Moscow," he said. "I don’t know what this statement is connected with, but such actions [supplying weapons] would contradict Russian laws," Peskov noted.

On March 25, Abdurakhmanov criticized the US Congress’ resolution calling on President Barack Obama to supply weapons to Kiev. "Weapons supply to Ukraine will be considered by us as a signal for adequate response. We will start supplying the most modern weapons to Mexico to resume disputes about the legal status of territories annexed by the US, where the US states of California, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado and part of Wyoming are now located," he said.
