GROZNY, June 10. /TASS/. The mopping-up operation in the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) town of Kamyshevakha has been completed, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said in his Telegram channel on Thursday.

"The entire territory has been cleared by fighters of the Akhmad-Khadzhi Kadyrov Special Police Regiment of the Interior Ministry’s Chechen Republic Department and the 6th Cossacks Regiment. Deputy commander of the regiment, Mezhed Utsmigov, is now holding a small press tour around areas where intense battles with foreign mercenaries and other neo-Nazi scum raged earlier," Kadyrov wrote.

In his words, foreign mercenaries and Ukrainian nationalists dug foxholes and deployed military equipment in the immediate vicinity from residential buildings.

"As those ‘brave’ Ukrainian fighters flee, they leave behind Western weapons, which is already in shortage," the Chechen leader added.

Kadyrov also said that those who fled Kamyshevakha are now in the village of Vrubovka.

"Not a single nationalist - let alone a mercenary - will be able to escape punishment for their atrocities. I have no doubts about that," he said.

On May 30, Kadyrov announced that Chechen units together with security forces of the Lugansk People's Republic (LPR) have taken control of up to 90% of Kamyshevakha.

LPR People's Militia officer Andrey Marochko said earlier that after the liberation of Kamyshevakha, it would be possible to talk about taking the Ukrainian military into operational encirclement in the area of Lisichansk and Severodonetsk.
