The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, during the meeting, announced the introduction of all the sanctions that exist in the Republic against US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo.
Kadyrov said that he cancels his invitation to Pompeo to come to Chechnya. Earlier, the head of the Republic invited the US Secretary of State to discuss “who violates what rights.”
“I declare to include all the sanctions that we have in the Republic, up to the point of blocking his accounts. They did the same thing against me,” the head of Chechnya said.
Kadyrov also expressed bewilderment at the inclusion of his wife and daughters on this list.
“Without evidence, without a trial included in the most serious American sanctions “list of Magnitsky.” The list that I am now included in only provides for a ban on entry, and before that, horses, cats, dogs — all included, and, without hesitation, again included in the new list. If I committed a crime, what does it have to do with my children? Where is it written that married daughters are responsible for their father’s sins? And here is my wife, who does not climb anywhere, neither in politics, anywhere,” Kadyrov said.
At the same time, he stressed that he is proud to be included in the sanctions lists. “We should be proud of this, we are known, we are put on the world level in global issues, our name matters,” Kadyrov said.
Earlier, the US State Department announced the inclusion of the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov in the blacklist of persons who, according to the Department, are involved in human rights violations. Kadyrov’s wife and daughters were sanctioned.
