Five Dagestani children flying to Russia from Iraq
Five children from Russia's Dagestan who have found themselves in a combat zone in Iraq are flying home, the head of Russia’s North Caucasian republic of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, wrote on his Instagram account.
The children are being brought to Russia by the head of the Chechen Republic in Iraq to the Middle East and North Africa, Senator Ziyad Sabsabi.
On August 4, Kadyrov wrote on his Telegram channel that his representatives had visited the Al-Salihiya orphanage in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, where six presumably Russian children had been found. Kadyrov also said that there are 35 to 40 other Russian nationals and up to 100 citizens of the CIS countries in other orphanages in Baghdad, as well as about the same number in the Mosul area and Kurdistan.
