While Russia announced that it would withdraw from the capital Kyiv and intensify its operations in the east of the country, a contradictory statement came from the Chechen leader Kadyrov, one of the closest names to Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
The leader of the autonomous Chechnya Republic of the Russian Federation, Ramazan Kadyrov, said that Russia will launch military operations against the capital Kiev and other cities in Ukraine.
In the video he uploaded to his Telegram account , Kadyrov stated that they will “completely liberate” the Luhansk and Donetsk regions in eastern Ukraine, and then they will take Kiev and other cities. Noting that Russia’s operations will not be limited to Mairupol alone, the Chechen leader said, “I assure you that not a single step will be taken back. “The attacks will continue not only in Mariupol, but also in other cities and villages,” he said.
RUSSIA SAYS “WE ARE WITHDRAWAL”
After the ceasefire talks held in Istanbul at the end of last month, Russia announced that it would withdraw its troops from around Kyiv and concentrate on areas partially controlled by pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine. The images of the massacre, which came from the regions where the Russian army had withdrawn recently, had awakened the world.
After the beginning of the Russian invasion, Kadyrov, who expressed his loyalty to Putin at every opportunity, sent thousands of Chechen fighters to Ukraine. The Ukrainian Security Service claimed that the Chechen fighters had returned to their country after suffering heavy losses. The Ukrainian press also claimed that Kadyrov, who was said to have gone to Kiev last month, was actually in Russia.
