Ramzan Kadyrov threatens to oppose Russia because of situation in Myanmar

If the Russian authorities take the side of the organizers of the Muslims' persecution in Myanmar, their position will be contrary to that of Chechen authorities. This was stated by Ramzan Kadyrov. Meanwhile, in Chechnya itself, Salafis are subjected to persecution.

On his page in Instagram, the Chechen leader posted a live video in which he commented on the events in Myanmar, the "Dozhd" (Rain) TV Channel reports.

On the video, Ramzan Kadyrov called the events in Myanmar "the genocide of Muslims" and reported getting "a lot of letters" asking him to "send troops" to the country.

According to Ramzan Kadyrov, if he could he would "strike with a nuclear weapon" the people who "kill children, women, and old people."

The leader of Chechnya has called the organizers of the tragic events in Myanmar "shaitans" (devils). He has noted if Russia supports them, then he will oppose the position of Russia.

It should be noted that on August 28, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) condemned the events in Myanmar.

Chechnya pays great attention to religion. Meanwhile, some local residents doubt that the republic needs a large number of theologians. According to the locals, the authorities pay little attention to the development of the economy and the social sphere.

Meanwhile, Muslims who do not profess the traditional concepts of Islam are subjected to persecution.
