The Chechen leader took demonstrative actions in response to the attack on the police station, because he is afraid of his ruling regime.
The leader of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, has reacted tactfully to the attack on a police station in Chechnya. These actions on his part indicate that he may be concerned about the stability of his authoritarian rule. This is what analysts at the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) said in their report.
Chechen law enforcement officers killed two unidentified men who attempted to carry out an attack on Gudermes in Chechnya on the night of March 28, Kadyrov said. Russian sources have circulated a video that allegedly shows two men shooting at a local police station.
Kadyrov Special Forces University is located in Gudermes. However, it is not known if the attack is related to this establishment. Kadyrov published footage showing himself, his 15-year-old son, and an entourage of Chechen officials and security forces visiting the scene of the attack and inspecting the bodies of the attackers.
The demonstrative review of the bodies may be aimed at allowing Kadyrov to strengthen his image as a “strong man” and “also send a signal to Chechens that any form of internal resistance to his rule will be eliminated,” according to ISW.
Analysts also noted that on March 13, Kadyrov met with the head of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin. In their opinion, this was done to increase Chechnya’s relationship in the political and military sphere of Russia.
Putin may use Kadyrov’s fear of falling out of favor to pressure him to increase the role of Chechen fighters on the frontline in Ukraine, the ISW report said.
Recall that the police of the Czech Republic are investigating the theft of a breeding horse of an English breed, which occurred approximately on February 3-4. According to the media, Zazu is part of the property of the leader of Chechnya, which is frozen under international sanctions.
Kadyrov said the horse stolen in the Czech Republic was worth at least $10 million
