Ramzan Kadyrov an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin has recently expressed his interest in attacking Poland next, adding that he is already prepared for assault should the Russian leader give the order.
In a video broadcast to social media on Wednesday, Kadyrov warned Poland that it needed to “take back” the weapons it had given to its neighbor. He even exclaimed that he can take control of Poland in under 10 seconds if Putin grants the order. He even asked for an official apology regarding an incident involving Russia’s ambassador to Poland, Sergey Andreev.
“The issue of Ukraine is closed. I’m interested in Poland. After Ukraine, if we’re given the command, in six seconds we’ll show you what we’re capable of,” Kadyrov said in a video posted on Twitter by BBC journalist Francis Scarr on Wednesday.
“You should better take back your weapons and your mercenaries. And beg official forgiveness for what you did to our ambassador. We won’t just ignore it.”
Since the Kremlin-led assault began on February 24, Poland has been one of Ukraine’s most ardent supporters.
According to a Federal Security Service (FSB) agent, the notorious leader may gain power by exploiting the instability of political dissent in the Kremlin.
Losing the “Battle for Donbas” would contribute to Russia’s instability, the spy said and may lead to a coup or even worse territory loss.
Vladimir Putin is striving to capture control of the whole Donbas region, and the Kremlin has begun its newest attack on Ukraine’s eastern territory.
Chechens have a reputation for ferocity and have been accused of war crimes on numerous occasions. The conflict in Ukraine has provided Kadyrov with an ideal opportunity to demonstrate both his devotion and continued utility to Putin.
The Kremlin, which funds the Chechen leader’s government, is responsible for his position and power.
