Verkhovna Rada recognizes the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria as temporarily occupied by Russia

Verkhovna Rada adopted a resolution yesterday recognizing the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria as temporarily occupied by the Russian Federation and condemning the genocide of the Chechen people, reports Espreso with reference to the Telegram channels of Ukrainian deputies.

The resolution was supported by 287 legislators.

“[Putin] forces Chechens to fight against Ukrainians. This is a typical imperialist policy of Russia in relation to other nations. Russia must be decolonized, and Ichkeria must be free,” MP Oleksiy Goncharenko commented on the adoption of the resolution.
