Kadyrov reports on work of Chechen special forces in Syria
In the territory of Syria, in the rear of the militants of the "Islamic State" (IS), fighters of the Chechen special forces are operating, said the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov, adding that the Chechen fighters had been trained at the centre of special forces near the village of Tsentoroi.
"It's time to report on those, who ensure the success of Russian aircrafts on the ground at the cost of their own lives," said the story about the Chechen special forces, screened on February 7 in the programme "News of the Week" on TV Channel "Russia-1". This story was a preview of the documentary by Alexander Rogatkin, which will be released in the programme "Special Correspondent" on February 10.
Kadyrov's voice off-screen says that they managed to create an extensive network of agents right in the IS, the portal "Medusa" reports.
"Best fighters of the republic were sent there. They gather information about the structure and the number of terrorists, define the targets for bombing and fix the outcomes thereof," said the head of Chechnya.
He said that at the beginning of the war in Syria intelligence agents from Chechnya were sent, under the cover, to training camps where fighters, who profess Wahhabism, were trained.
The Kremlin refused to comment on the story, referring to the information, earlier disseminated by the Russian Ministry of Defence.
