GROZNY, May 11. /TASS/. The head of Chechnya, a republic in Russia’s North Caucasus, Ramzan Kadyrov has addressed US President Barack Obama and his allies calling on the leaders of world powers to forget old insults and think about the future together.
"I am convinced that you all should forget past offenses, rise above minor problems, the leaders of global powers should meet and ask themselves where you are leading this world," Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram page.
"Maybe there’ll be some result! But don’t hope sanctions could turn Russia into an obedient semi-colonial country," he wrote.
Kadyrov said the defeat of Germany in World War II "was our common victory the decisive role in which belongs to Russia."
"You were not present at the May 9 Victory Parade in Moscow although you should have paid tribute to the memory of tens of millions of fallen Russian soldiers and officers, shown all terrorist leaders that you are united in the urge to fight for peace and a just world order," he said.
"Instead, you gave to understand that you are not ready to stand against the threat of a new world war in a united front," Kadyrov said.
Most Western leaders refused to come to Moscow on May 9 to mark Victory Day and attend the Victory Parade in the Russian capital this year over the situation in Ukraine they blame Russia for.
The West has subjected Russia to sanctions over Ukraine. Moscow has introduced food import bans for Western countries in response.
Russia has constantly dismissed accusations of "annexing" Crimea, because Crimea reunified with Russia voluntarily after a referendum in mid-March 2014, as well as allegations that Moscow could in any way be involved in hostilities in Ukraine's southeast.
