According to Putin, with the personal participation of Kadyrov, “Chechnya has become one of the safest constituent entities of the Russian Federation.”
“You are in the material, you work effectively, you know the situation from the inside, therefore, I believe that you need to go to the polls and continue your work. For my part, I can only wish you success, ”Putin said.
