Kadyrov’s emissary talks to Chechen resistance

Chechen strongman Ramzan Kadyrov’s emissary, Magomed Khambiev, plans to meet with representatives of the Chechen resistance. He said he will visit a Western European country, where he hopes to persuade exiled Chechens to return home. In particular, Khambiev expects to come back with his brother, Umar Khambiev, who was Chechen president Aslan Maskhadov’s representative abroad.

  1. Earlier, Magomed Khambiev sent an appeal to the leaders of the Chechen resistance movement, in which he stated that under Ramzan Kadyrov, Chechens had “gained the independence for which they had fought so long.” Khambiev said Kadyrov was ready for talks.

    Some commentators regarded Khambiev’s appeal as a response to the statement of Akhmed Zakaev, former representative of the Chechen resistance movement abroad, strongly condemning resistance leader Dokka Umarov’s declaration of a “Caucasian Emirate”.

    In an interview, Zakaev said that Ramzan Kadyrov was carrying out a “policy of decolonisation” and was, in fact, putting into effect the plans of the resistance movement for Chechen independence.

    One political commentator said Zakaev was giving out clear signals of his readiness to enter into talks with the current leadership in Grozny. Through Khambiev, Kadyrov let it be known that he was not averse to establishing contact with Zakaev.
