Kadyrov: “I’m Putin’s Man”


Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov said he would “rather die 100 times” than disappoint Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, according to an interview published in Nasha Versia on 11 January 2010.

“I’m the real representative of the Kremlin. I am completely Vladimir Putin’s man,” Kadyrov told the Moscow weekly. “I’d rather die 100 times than let him down,” Bloomberg reported.

Kadyrov blamed “the same foreign powers that destroyed the Soviet Union” for continuing violence in the republic. Those same enemies are responsible for “alcoholism, drug abuse and prostitution” in Siberia, Kadyrov said.
