Ramzan Kadyrov has reported the return to Russia of a minor resident of Chechnya, who had been brought to Syria and found among the ruins in the city of Mosul.

According to Kadyrov, the father of the boy had taken him first to Syria, and then to Iraq. Ramzan Kadyrov asserts that the child and his father in the Iraq's Mosul "were found half dead among the city ruins."

The head of Chechnya has also stated that he had ordered to help and return the boy to Russia, noting that he had entrusted his plenipotentiary representative Ziyad Sabsabi with the mission to find the children removed from Russia to Syria and Iraq.

"This activity has its own specificities; details are not disclosed, so as not to risk the lives of those who work there, as well as the children’s lives. During this time, the data about some children from Chechnya and other Russia regions have been established. Virtually all their parents had died. We are engaged in the destiny of each of them," Kadyrov has written today on his page in the Instagram.
