Russian-occupied Ichkeria’s government wants tribunal against Kadyrov

The government of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria in exile is working on the possibility of creating a special tribunal for the current pro-Moscow head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov. Deputies want to bring the president appointed by Russia to justice for the creation of the Akhmat religious extremist unit, which committed crimes against humanity on the territory of Ukraine.

“This religious sect committed crimes against humanity in Europe. Religious sectarianism takes root in Chechnya, the North Caucasus, and the world. Therefore, creating a special tribunal for Kadyrov and Akhmat is very important not only for Chechnya and Ukraine,” Inal Sherip, a member of the Ichkeria government in exile, said in an interview with Ukrinform.

In Chechnya, a large group of religious managers was created under the control of the Russian special services. The ideology of Akhmat justifies participation in the war against Ukraine and the killing of Ukrainians. This gives reason to consider the special unit an extremist religious sect that poses a threat to the peoples of the Caucasus, Europe, and Ukraine, Sherip added.

“If we succeed in creating a special tribunal for Kadyrov, classifying Akhmat as a religious extremist sectarian group that poses a threat, I am sure that we will destroy the structure they created and which today justifies the murders of the Ukrainian people,” said a member of the Ichkeria government in exile.

The idea of creating a special tribunal was presented at the US expert level. It was also discussed with members of the inter-factional association “For Decolonization and Dismantling of the Russian Empire” in Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada [Parliament]. Consultations on the creation of the mechanism are currently ongoing.

Akhmat is part of the Russian National Guard of Russia and participated in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Ramzan Kadyrov, the pro-Moscow leader of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, heads the special unit.

Ukraine recognizes the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria as a state temporarily occupied by Russia. This is a territory in the Caucasus – a region on the border between Europe and Asia. As a result of the second war between Russians and Chechens in 1999-2009, the Russian Federation destroyed the country’s capital, Grozny, and installed a pro-Moscow regime led by Kadyrov.
