Kadyrov is "a vegetable" claims son of former Ichkerian president Maskhadov

24 September, 2023 Sunday

Anzor Maskhadov, a Chechen public and political figure who is the son of former president of the Republic of Ichkeria, Aslan Maskhadov, also says that Kadyrov has no support among Chechens

He shared the information on Espreso TV.

"The Chechen Republic of Ichkeria is occupied. It has never been decided in Grozny who will be the next traitor to the Chechen people. It was always decided in the Kremlin. During the First Russian-Chechen War, the Kremlin decided who would be their puppet. At that time it was Doku Zavgayev. During the Second Russian-Chechen War, the Kremlin also decided to install Kadyrov Sr. (Akhmat Kadyrov, first president of the Chechen Republic within the Russian Federation - ed.), whom they themselves later killed, and instead they installed the current Kadyrov Jr. (Ramzan Kadyrov, his son - ed.)," Maskhadov recalled.

The Chechen public and political figure also added that not a single Chechen supports Kadyrov.

"Kadyrov is nobody for Chechens. Not a single Chechen supports him. People who are leaving occupied Ichkeria, trying to avoid mobilization, tell us what is happening there. They think Kadyrov is vegetative, because this traitor to the Chechen people has indeed turned vegetative," emphasized Maskhadov.

  • Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov is in severe condition, but Ukrainian intelligence has no confirmation of his death.

Rumours of Kadyrov's death

On September 15, a representative of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, Andriy Yusov, said that Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov's illness had worsened. According to him, Kadyrov is in a serious condition.

This information about the critical condition of the head of Chechnya was confirmed by various sources. At the same time, it was emphasized that it was not an injury.

Subsequently, on September 17, a video appeared on Kadyrov's Telegram channel in which the head of Chechnya responded to previous statements about his serious condition.

In the video, Kadyrov walks in the rain and advises everyone "who cannot distinguish truth from lies" to do the same. 

At the same time, the media reported that the Chechen leader's plane had been in Moscow for three days. It was noted that the business jet with the number RA-73417 took off from Grozny towards Moscow on September 15 and stopped transmitting a signal in the sky over Volgograd, and flight tracking services did not record its landing.

In addition, the VCHK-OGPU Telegram channel, which is close to Russian law enforcement agencies, reported that most of the vehicles currently on the territory of the Central Clinical Hospital of the Russian Presidential Administration are connected to Chechnya. 

On September 18, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin had no information about Kadyrov's possible illness.

On September 19, Mykhailo Prytula, a military expert and retired SBU colonel, said that Kadyrov's death can lead to serious consequences in the Caucasus, including for the Russian authorities.

Meanwhile, Aleksey Baranovsky, a communications adviser to the Russian opposition and the Freedom of Russia Legion, believes that the threat to Kadyrov could have come from the FSB. Putin would never give any order to neutralize him.
