MOSCOW, April 23. /TASS/. President of Russia's Republic of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov said on Thusday there is no conflict between him as president of the republic, on the one hand, and Chechen agencies of law and order or federal forces including the federal security bureau FSB, on the other hand.
"What conflict are you talking about?" he said in an interview with the LifeNews TV channel. "I can tell you once again there are the shaitans (devils - TASS), who seek to seed disorder on the territory of the Russian Federation, and that’s why they make such assertions."
"I’m a government employee, a general, a hero, and I am not a servant of Shaitan, an officer of a Western secret service of some sort," Kadyrov said. "I am a man of the Kremlin, Putin’s man."
"Security services know fairly well who Kadyrov is and it’s impossible to set us one against the other but some forces throw around various rumors so that people would think and talk among themselves about some kind of misunderstandings between different regions and the servicing that maintain law and order," he said.
"I’m the servant of the people, the servant of the Almighty God, and Putin’s rifleman," Kadyrov said.
Kadyrov also said that a man named Dzhambulat Dadayev whom police officers from the Stavropol territory killed in the Chechen capital Grozny in the course of a special operation last weekend was not linked to Zaur Dadayev arrested as a suspect in the case over the murder of Russian oppositionist Boris Nemtsov.
One comes across the surname Dadayev frequently enough in Chechnya and these two men were not immediately related to each other.
"We have many Dadayevs here and if you decide to name each of them personally, you’ll embrace a half of the republic then," Kadyrov said.
He also said the Dadayev killed in Grozny was a businessman, "while that other Dadayev is a military let me put it this way - and there’re no links whatsoever."
Kadyrov said he had spoken to security officials earlier in the day and they had hold him a criminal case over the weekend incident had been instituted.
The charges proceed from Clause 286.3 of the Criminal Code, which stipulates responsibility for an abuse of occupational powers that is committed through the use of violence, weapons or specialized equipment and entails heavy consequences.
The people found guilty under this clause may face jail terms of up to ten years.
