The threats of the Ukrainian nationalist Yevgeny Karas (included in the list of terrorists and extremists of Rosfinmonitoring) that the militants would allegedly strike Grozny made the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, want to laugh it off in response.
“I read here a statement from some shoelace that their missiles would reach Grozny. I was so scared that I didn’t know what to do with myself. I’m already looking for a bunker,” he said in a video posted on January 28 on his Telegram channel.
Kadyrov added that the Russian military will continue to detect and destroy nationalists in Ukraine
“It is our shells that will reach you. And yours will stay at home, ”he concluded.
Earlier, on January 18, Kadyrov said that soldiers of the Akhmat special forces regiment took a large number of Ukrainian militants prisoner while occupying a stronghold in the Donetsk People’s Republic in the Maryinsky direction. According to him, the line of defense taken is “strategically important and its capture is a significant success on the Maryinsky [направлениии]”.
The special operation to protect the Donbass, the beginning of which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24, continues. The decision was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.
