GROZNY. July 22. /TASS/. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has proposed Wednesday to revoke citizenship of Russian nationals who joined the Islamic State terrorist organization.
"The person who went to Syria or Iraq should know that he closed a door to Chechnya, and there is no way back. More than that, I think it would be appropriate to revoke citizenship of all persons from all country’s regions who go to join terrorist organizations and not to let them back to Russia," Kadyrov wrote on his social network.
On Tuesday, the Chechen leader held a meeting with republic’s interior minister Ruslan Alkhanov. Chechnya has "invaluable experience in fighting terrorism" and other countries express interest in this, Kadyrov said.
"However, we should not relax. The Iblis State [Islamic State] that receives directions from Western special services carries out terrorist attacks in countries and regions where Muslims live. Their aim is to shed as much Muslim blood as possible, undermine economy, destroy [territorial] integrity of Islamic countries," he noted.
