Adam Kadyrov announced as curator of the MoD's Chechen battalion
The 16-year-old Adam Kadyrov has been entrusted to act as curator of the battalion named after Sheikh Mansur, associates of the head of Chechnya has informed.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on October 24, Ramzan Kadyrov announced that barracks were being equipped in Gudermes for a new battalion of the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) named after Sheikh Mansur.
Adam Kadyrov, a son of the head of Chechnya, "has been entrusted with an important mission," Magomed Daudov, the Speaker of the Chechen Parliament, has informed in his Telegram channel. "From now on, he will oversee one of the most combat-ready units within the Russian MoD – the Sheikh Mansur battalion," the Speaker has written.
Magomed Daudov has expressed his confidence that the teenager "will do everything necessary to ensure that the battalion's personnel are provided with everything necessary to carry out their missions efficiently."
"This appointment was a natural result of Adam's significant merits in defending the religious, family and cultural values of our nation," Adam Delimkhanov, a State Duma MP, has stated in his turn.
Let us remind you that by November 17, Adam Kadyrov had received at least nine state and public awards. However, the "Chechnya Today" News Agency has mentioned only Adam's beating up of the arrested Nikita Zhuravel among his merits. The experts on the Caucasus interviewed by the "Caucasian Knot" have disputed about the motives for awarding Adam Kadyrov.
