The scandalous head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, said that three thousand of his fighters are ready to go to fight in Ukraine.
Russian propaganda publications write about this.
Kadyrov's claims cannot be independently verified, and estimates of the number of Chechen fighters sent to Ukraine vary.
"They have the best equipment and modern weapons. In addition, the guys are highly combat-ready and very motivated to achieve results," Kadyrov said.
According to Don-Don, Chechen militants have joined new units of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and the Russian Guard. They will serve in the following criminal formations: "Akhmat-Russia" and "Akhmat-Chechnya", as well as in the newly created "battalions" named after Sheikh Mansur and named after Baysangur Benoyevsky
It should be noted that Sheikh Mansur and Baysangur Benoyevsky were fighters for the independence of the Chechen people from the Russian Empire in the 18th and 19th centuries. The decision to name the occupiers' units after them caused discontent among some Z-propagandists.
Are the "Kadyrovites" really fighting on the front line?
Earlier, Ruslan Leviev, the founder of the investigative group Conflict Intelligence Team, explained that the Kadyrovites never take part in real battles, but at the same time they actively promote themselves on social networks and shoot staged videos. They are kept by Ramzan Kadyrov "for other" purposes, including to support his regime.
In addition, the Kadyrovites serve as barrier detachments at the front and shoot those Russians who want to retreat from the battlefield.
Instead, in real battles, the "don-don" henchmen terrorize the Ukrainian population in the occupied territories.
At the same time, all over Russia, Kadyrov's henchmen are recruiting volunteers, promising them good money for the opportunity to die in Ukraine. These mercenaries are then taken to Chechnya, local chevrons are attached to their uniforms and sent to Ukraine as "Chechens".
