Kadyrov reports training and sending group of volunteers to Ukraine

A new group of volunteers has left Chechnya for the combat zone after training at the Russian Special Forces' University, Ramzan Kadyrov has announced, treating volunteer units as "the main driving force" of the military operation in Ukraine.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Kadyrov is regularly reporting about sending groups of volunteers to Ukraine; in particular, he reported this on November 11. Magomed Daudov, the Chairman of the Chechen Parliament, has informed that more than 20,000 Chechen fighters have visited Ukraine since the start of the military operation, and 9029 of them are still there.

"Young people from all regions of our vast Motherland regularly come here to acquire the appropriate skills and then take part in the [military operation]," Ramzan Kadyrov wrote in his Telegram channel.

In the video, several volunteers reported that they had come to Chechnya from Moscow, the Perm Territory, the Astrakhan Region, Irkutsk and Voronezh.

A man of 52 introduced himself as a resident of the Kurchaloi District of Chechnya. "All my friends and relatives are there ... I don't think I'm too old enough to sit at home and watch them there; I'm ashamed," he said in the video.

Let us remind you that on October 28, Sergey Shoigu, the Russian Defence Minister, reported that the partial mobilization was over. The next day, Askhab Nakaev, a deputy commander of the OMON (riot police) company "Akhmat-1" of the Chechen branch of the "Rosgvardiya" (Russian National Guard), made an appeal to Chechen youth to enter the military service.
