Russia sent a message regarding the peaceful end of the war

For us, achieving the set goals remains the absolute priority, and will remain so in the future. These can now only be achieved with military means, he said.

According to the spokesman, the Kremlin does not see the prerequisites for the situation in Ukraine to be diverted to a peaceful course.

Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of Chechnya, who was received by President Vladimir Putin on Monday, said at the meeting that the Chechens unanimously support the “special operation” in Ukraine, believe that its goals must be achieved and are ready to fight until victory. Kadyrov assured Putin that he would not let him down. The Russian president stated that he had no doubts about this and praised the performance of the Chechen fighters, whom he thanked.

The economic newspaper RBK quoted a previous statement by Kadyrov, according to which more than 21,000 Chechens have participated in the fighting in Ukraine so far, and more than 9,000 were on the front at the same time.

Major General Apti Alaudinov, commander of the Chechen special unit Akhmat, deputy commander of the 2nd corps of the “people’s militia” in Luhansk, told the Perviy Kanal TV channel on Monday that the Ukrainian army carried out a consolidation of troops in the Artemivsk (Bakhmut) area and attempted to liberate the city.
