Publicly identifying himself as Putin’s infantryman, Kadyrov was promoted to the rank of lieutenant general for his role later Russian invasion of Ukraine. Chechen units allied to Kadyrov operated in Bucha, where Russian troops destroyed houses. Kadyrov is recruiting for participation in the Russian military operations through mixed martial arts clubs, which allows him and his units to continue their activities in Ukraine, “the report says.

The following were sanctioned:
