Russian Federation no longer exists legally – Zakayev

Russian authorities did not extend the federation agreement, so all subjects have the right to independence, said Akhmed Zakayev, Prime Minister of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria’s government-in-exile.

“Currently, modern Russia is a colonial state, an empire. And all peoples who allegedly voluntarily signed that treaty have the right to freedom. The world should recognize this,” Zakayev said.

The treaty on the formation of a federal state was signed in 1992. The document was valid only for 10 years. In 2002, Russia did not extend its effect, Zakayev explained.

Ukraine has become the leader of the free world today, and all peoples who seek freedom should be guided by it, added the Prime Minister of the Ichkeria’s government-in-exile.

“Victory over Russia is freedom for all enslaved peoples. The world should be ready for the fact that Russia should cease to exist. And whether the world will be ready for this largely depends on Ukraine,” Zakayev concluded.

Earlier, Ukraine issued a new official edition of the Europe map, which indicates the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria. On October 18, 2022, the Ukrainian Parliament officially recognized Chechnya as temporarily occupied by Russia and condemned the genocide of the Chechen people.
