Kadyrov threatens Zakaev with reprisal
The leader of Chechnya promised to burn Akhmed Zakaev, living in Great Britain. Ramzan Kadyrov stated that Akhmed Zakaev promised to return to Chechnya from emigration, but did not keep his word.
The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that in late January, after an Akhmed Zakaev’s appeal in support of the people killed by law enforcers in Katar-Yurt, Shamsail Saraliev, a State Duma member from Chechnya, demanded the extradition of Akhmed Zakaev from Great Britain to Russia. In March, in Chechnya, investigators instituted a criminal case against Akhmed Zakaev under the article on justifying terrorism.
In his joint broadcast with Speaker of the Chechen Parliament Magomed Daudov on Instagram, Ramzan Kadyrov voiced threats against Akhmed Zakaev.
“If you mention the name of my father again, then you will see what will become of you [...] I will burn you in a blue flame, if you mention my father’s name,” said the leader of Chechnya on the video as translated by the “Kavkaz.Realii”*. On September 15, the video was posted on the Instagram page lord_095 with two million followers.
Ramzan Kadyrov accused Akhmed Zakaev of not keeping his promise to return to Chechnya with his associates.
The leader of Chechnya also called Akhmed Zakaev a traitor and referred to the opinion of Aslan Maskhadov.
Then Ramzan Kadyrov declared that he was not going to kill his critics, who “received political asylum in different countries” after the threats. “We need you alive and healthy. We will bring you home and bring you to your knees in front of people. Do not die yet, beware of the coronavirus there,” the leader of Chechnya said.
