Relatives of women and children from Syria gather in Grozny

The arrival in Grozny Airport of a group of women and children from Syria is scheduled for today. They will get documents on their voluntary surrender, law enforcers have assured.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on November 9, Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of Chechnya, announced that at early this week, a group of 44 women and children would be brought from Syria to Grozny. According to his story, nine children and two women are citizens of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, while the rest are Russian citizens from Bashkiria, Orel, Dagestan and other regions, including 10 women and children from Chechnya.

The authorities of the Russian Federation are trying to return from the Middle East to their homeland the families of the men who had allegedly joined terrorists. The Chechen leadership is actively involved in the process.

The funds needed to search for and return children and women from Iraq and Syria are allocated by the Akhmat-Hajji Kadyrov Foundation; and this work demands a lot of effort, an employee of the office of the Chechen leader and the government has noted.

Two women from Dagestan, who returned to Russia on October 21, were detained; and on October 24, a Makhachkala court ruled to put them into custody, despite their breast-fed babies.

There is no exact data on the number of Chechen women and children in the Middle East, said an employee of a local NGO. According to her story, there are lists with more than 600 names, "but they are far from being complete."

Full text of the article is available on the Russian page of 24/7 Internet agency ‘Caucasian Knot’.
