It was after the death of Yevgeny Prigozhin that there was speculation that Kadyrov would be Putin’s next target. At the same time – if the news is true – it is not known whether any external intervention could be involved in falling into a coma, oris it simply a health problem? Based on the above, the latter is more likely.
Dmitry Gudkov, a former Russian representative currently living in exile in the West, said that a few weeks ago He told, Kadyrov may be the next to do the same as Wagner leader Yevgeny Prigozhin. Gudkov indicated that the Chechen president had previously praised the activities of Prigozhin and his mercenaries several times and expressed his dissatisfaction with the Russian leadership, and that he also has a private army, the Akhmat.
It should be noted, however, that Kadyrov was put in power by Putin, and he has always remained loyal to the Russian president compared to Prigozhin.
Kadyrov told those predicting his death on Telegram that he is “amused” by the predictions that a “quick death” awaits him, and that he will never tire of proclaiming that he is committed to the homeland. Kadyrov noted
WILLING TO DIE FOR PUTIN, BUT ACCEPTS HE COULD DIE “SUDDENLY” IF THE RUSSIAN PRESIDENT HAS A FOLLOWER MORE LOYAL THAN HIM.
