On the say that sanctions were imposed against him by the US, the Chechen leader Radman Kadyrov claims his troops now have total control of the Zaporizhzhya region.

Chechen leader Radman Kadyrov claimed today, Thursday, September 15, that his forces have taken full control of the Ukrainian region of Zaporizhzhya

Posting on his Telegram channel, he wrote: “All strategic positions occupied in the Zaporizhzhya region are under the strict control of the Akhmat special forces. This is reported by my dear BROTHER, the commander of the OMON ‘Akhmat-Grozny’ of the UFSVNG of the Russian Federation for the Chechen Republic Anzor Bisayev”.

He continued: “Our fighters control absolutely all occupied points, carry out high-quality interaction with their colleagues from other military formations, and smash Ukrofashist Banderaites and foreign mercenaries”.

“We have no doubt about the fighting qualities of our guys. They have already shown themselves perfectly during the liberation of Mariupol, Lysychansk, and other large cities and towns. At this stage, the fighters of the special forces ‘Akhmat’ are just waiting for the order to move into battle”, Kadyrov stressed.

He added: “I wish the guys further success in the course of the special military operation! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”.

His post comes on the same day that the US imposed sanctions against the Chechen leader. He is one of 22 individuals named by the US Treasury Department, along with two organisations allegedly involved in the deportation of Ukrainian children.
