Chechen leader proposes to provide safe corridors for women and children in Syria and Iraq
Russia’s Chechen Republic leader Ramzan Kadyrov said he would address the country's Defense Ministry to provide safe corridors in Syria and Iraq to let women and children leave battle zones.
"I intend to address the Russian Ministry of Defense and the authorities of Syria and Iraq with a request to provide safe corridors for women and children, who are situated in the zones of brutal battles. I received a message, a cry for help from women who are situated there with children. They ask to help them leave the battle zones," Sputnik cited Kadyrov as saying.
He also stressed that the Chechen Republic had agreements with Syrian, Iraqi and Kurdish authorities, with an effective way established to recover children from conflict-torn areas.
