Kadyrov commented on the Russian military operation in Syria on his official Instagram account.
"One would think the world should applaud, but then we have US and the West worrying about ISIL losses. Yesterday they said it was evil, yet as soon as Russian aviation started conducting airstrikes, they suddenly condemn bombings and call for taking measures against Russia. But there’s the nation behind our army, and nobody cares about the West’s whining," Kadyrov wrote.
Only hours after Russia began conducting airstrikes in Syria last week, US media reports began circulating groundless accusations of Moscow striking moderate Syrian rebels trained under the 2014 US train-and-equip program and the earlier CIA program.
The Chechen leader noted that it is not the first time Russia has stood up to terrorist threats and that its enemy "has to be destroyed in its own lair."
Kadyrov added that Chechnya is carrying out preventive activity aimed at keeping Russian youth, and Chechen in particular, from joining the Islamic State.
