The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, commented on his inclusion in the “Magnitsky list”.
The US Ministry of Finance has included Kadyrov in the banned list of persons, on charges of involvement in “extrajudicial killings, torture and other gross violations of internationally recognized human rights.”
Kadyrov ironically commented on this decision, saying that “even sleeping pills would not help him sleep at night now”.
“I said before, but again I repeat for those who are especially forgetful that I would not have gone to the United States if I had been offered all the currency reserves of the country as prizes,” he recalled.
According to Kadyrov, many famous Americans come to visit him themselves, and some people plan to settle in Chechnya.
He stated that the US can not forgive him for devoting his life to fighting foreign terrorists, among whom were those who were trained by the US special services.
