  • Experts treat Kadyrov's statements about Chechen spetsnaz in Syria as PR actions

    Ramzan Kadyrov's statement that Chechen spetsnaz (special troops) is at war in Syria should be treated with scepticism, said Reserve Colonel Victor Murakhovskiy and Andrei Koshkin, a military political analyst. If Kadyrov is telling the truth, then he has actually "exposed" his spetsnaz to the fighters of the "Islamic State" (IS), said Alexei Malashenko, a member of the Scientific Council of the Moscow Carnegie Centre.
