"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.
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.
