Chechen leader slams reports of 'Kadyrov’s trace' in Ukrainian MP assassination attempt
Head of Russia’s Republic of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov has rejected Kiev’s accusations of attempting to murder Ukrainian lawmaker of the Radical Party Igor Mosiychuk, Kadyrov’s press service said on Thursday, TASS reports.
"The organizers of the crime against lawmaker Mosiychuk are in Ukraine. He has already played his part, so they do not need him anymore, or maybe he is even getting in the way of some person or organization, as there are dozens of them. It was them who attempted to blow Mosiychuk up, and now they are making fuss mentioning Chechnya and speaking about ‘Kadyrov’s trace’," Kadyrov said at the Chechen Interior Ministry’s meeting, as cited by his press service.
According to Chechnya’s head, statements about "a Chechen trace" point to Kiev’s attempt to escape responsibility for what is going on in Ukraine.
"After the assassination attempt on Mosiychuk, they start talking about ‘a Chechen trace’ and Kadyrov. Now the western media will start writing about it, they will be interested in that," Kadyrov noted.
