In a Saturday interview with Russia's TV Tsentr, Kadyrov commented on the anti-ISIL war in Syria by noting that the US-led international coalition has not seen any significant results in its fight against ISIL because they have not been taking the fight against terrorism seriously.
"They have not been fighting," Kadyrov said, adding that "they [the coalition] had not even the intention to seriously fight against this evil."
Now, Kadyrov suggested, the West has no choice but to join Russia. "The international coalition must join together with Russia and fight against the terrorists," he told TV Tsentr.
Meanwhile, Russia launched its own campaign of airstrikes, coordinated with the Syrian Army, in late September. On Sunday, Syrian President Bashar Assad suggested that the Russian campaign has made more progress in two months than the US-led coalition had in an entire year. The president asserted that since the launch of the Russian operation, the terrorists "have been retreating and fleeing Syria," with the situation on the ground improving dramatically. According to Assad, the Syrian Army is now "making advances on every front."
