Military School in Grozny named after Akhmat Kadyrov

The head of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) has ordered to name the Grozny Suvorov School after the first president of Chechnya, Akhmat Kadyrov. This was done in agreement with Ramzan Kadyrov, the incumbent head of the republic, said the school commander.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that shortly after the 68th birthday of the first president of Chechnya, Akhmat Kadyrov, on August 23, the Russian government approved the renaming of Ramzan Kadyrov's native village in the Kurchaloi District of Chechnya into Akhmat-Yurt. On August 29, a group of climbers set flags at the highest Chechen mountain peak, offering to name it in honour of Akhmat Kadyrov.

The Akhmat Kadyrov's cult evolved in Chechnya immediately after his death in 2004.

"We want to thank the head of Chechnya for allowing us to give the name of his father, a legendary person in the history of modern Russia, to our school," Lom-Ali Bakhaev, the school commander, said on the air of the "Grozny" TV Company.

Meanwhile, the school was named after Kadyrov earlier too, starting from September 2008, residents of Grozny have noted.
