MOSCOW, April 23. /TASS/. The Kremlin has no knowledge about the Chechen Republic’s complaints against their counterparts from the Stavropol Region, who last weekend held a special operation to detain a suspected criminal without notifying the local law enforcers.
"I know nothing about that," presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, when asked about rather harsh statements on that score by Chechnya’s leader Ramzan Kadyrov. "It will be possible to discuss that when we have studied the information."
Earlier this week Kadyrov urged a probe into actions by members of the Stavropol police force and the temporary operative group, which held a joint special operation in the Chechen capital Grozny in an attempt to detain one Dzhambulat Dadayev, who offered resistance and was killed.
Kadyrov said the Stavropol police force and the temporary operative group had no legal reasons for conducting the operation. He described as a crude violation the fact that the Chechen Interior Ministry had not been notified of the operation. Kadyrov ordered detailed investigation of all circumstances of the incident and make a proper legal decision.
