GROZNY, June 26. /TASS/. Chechnya's Head Ramzan Kadyrov called bluff some media reports claiming remaining bandit underground members in the North Caucasus had sworn oath to the Islamic State (IS).
"This information is nothing but a bluff; I do not think any still unkilled bandits, who are as yet sheltering in the woods, may be of any major assistance to radicals of the so-called Iblis (Devil) State," press service of the republic's head quoted him.
The situation in Chechnya is "fully controlled by law enforcers, and 99.9% of the people support the trend for peaceful living," Kadyrov said.
"However, we are not ignoring the threat, which may be caused by the Iblis State, thus in future we shall continue the work not to allow this infection in Chechnya," he said. "We shall be killing without remorse all devils and bandits.".
