The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, commented on the story with a photo taken at the IDEX-2021 international military-technical exhibition in Abu Dhabi. In the photo, Kadyrov was next to the head of the Ukrainian delegation, Deputy Prime Minister Oleg Urusky, whom the head of the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers Denis Shmygal forced to explain for such a neighborhood.
Kadyrov wrote in his Telegram channel that he learned about the existence of Urusky only after the reaction to their joint photo by the Ukrainian authorities. The head of Chechnya noted that if he knew who it was, he would not let him in. According to Kadyrov, he considers it unacceptable for himself to communicate with people “who are involved in the numerous troubles and sufferings of their own people.”
Let us remind you that the deputy of the Ukrainian prime minister has also already commented on the demand of his superiors to explain the joint photo with Kadyrov. According to Urusky, he did not choose with whom to stand at the opening of the exhibition in Abu Dhabi, since the placement of the heads of official delegations is determined by the protocol of the organizing state.
Urusky also noted that “he does not consider it possible to shy away from the representatives of either the aggressor country or any other country, thus demonstrating the insecure behavior and weakness of the Ukrainian side.”
