Kadyrov refutes rumours about "spiritual-moral certification" in Chechnya

The republic's authorities have no plans to conduct the "spiritual-moral certification" of young people in Chechnya, said Ramzan Kadyrov, thus refuting the information spread earlier by official Chechen mass media.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on February 18, the website of the Chechen Parliament posted a statement that by the decision of the head of Chechnya every young person in the republic aged 14-35 would pass the "spiritual-moral certification", which will fix his/her religion and tribal belonging.

Kadyrov said that earlier he had held a meeting, where it was decided that "local authorities, the clergy and civil society organizations would help law enforcement bodies."

However, the Chechen leader has refuted the information about any "spiritual-moral certification" and issuance of special passports to youngsters.

"Some media report that some new 'passport' will be issued in Chechnya to young people. I remind you that our country has only one passport – the passport of a Russian citizen! Everything else is just fudge!" said Kadyrov.

Full text of the article is available on the Russian page of 24/7 Internet agency ‘Caucasian Knot’.
