Kadyrov claims that he has received the green light for a new offensive in Donetsk
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has announced that he has been ordered to redeploy his forces to the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) in eastern Ukraine.
"Friends, the Chechen units have received a new order to redeploy their forces. "The territory of the Donetsk People's Republic becomes a zone of responsibility," Kadyrov wrote. "According to the order, fighters of the Chechen units must start active combat operations and liberate a large number of settlements. Combat units are preparing for offensive activities with the active support of the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces," he announced.
Kadyrov said that other units of his Akhmat battalion, located on "alternate parts of the contact line between the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions," received "similar orders to launch the offensive."
"It is necessary to declare a state of emergency in Russia and use all combat means to clean up the entire terrorist cell. "Instead of using the terms Ukrainian army and Ukrainian politicians, we should call them by their real name - terrorists," Kadyrov wrote. .
