GROZNY, May 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov has denied reports of Ukraine's media about participation of combat units from Chechnya in military actions in Donetsk. He wrote this in one of his official pages in social networks.

"Ukrainian sources circulated reports that some 'Chechen units' from Russia intruded into Donetsk. I am officially declaring that this is not true. No 'Chechen servicemen' or, still less, 'military columns from Chechnya' are involved in the conflict," Kadyrov stated.

The Head of the Republic has emphasized that Chechnya is one of the constituent entities of the Russia (RF) and, in accordance with the Constitution of the country, has no armed forces.

"lf someone saw a Chechen man in the conflict zone, this is his personal affair. Two-thirds out of three million Chechens live outside the Republic, in the West as well. We cannot and should not know who of them goes where, just as Kiev (authorities) did not know who of Ukrainians travelled to Grozny to fight. If the authorities of Ukraine want to see 'Chechen units' in Donetsk, why go to Donetsk at a time when there is a good road to Kiev?" Kadyrov queried.

According to the Head of Chechnya, in actual fact he proceeds from the assumption that "Ukraine, in the final analysis, just as was the case previously, will become a country friendly to Russia and that the people of Ukraine is to us a fraternal one."

"We want peace to set in that country," Kadyrov stressed.
