Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said that his associate and State Duma deputy Adam Delimkhanov was “alive and well” and called reports of his death a fake. Earlier, Kadyrov himself said that he was unable to get in touch with Delimkhanov.
“I knew this from the very beginning of the fake hoax, but I decided to show everyone, Ukrainians first and foremost, to what extent their media have sunk. It takes a lot of disrespect for your audience to blatantly lie, knowing full well that the lies can be refuted. And when I poured oil on the fire, it was already the authors of the fake that believed their own fairy tale”, explained the Chechen leader.
The Zvezda channel reported earlier that Delimkhanov had been shot, citing the press service of the State Duma. However, the channel stressed that he was alive. Telegram channels and the Ukrainian media reported that Kadyrov’s comrade-in-arms was dead.
Ramzan Kadyrov responded to the reports: “I am asking the Ukrainian intelligence service to provide information about exactly what place and what positions were hit, so that I may find my dear BROTHER. I promise a generous reward and ask for your help.
After that, Dmitri Kuznetsov said that Vyacheslav Volodin spoke with Delimkhanov, and that he was “alive and well. The Duma Speaker himself reacted to the information of Delimkhanov’s wounding.
Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin received with “great concern” the information about the possible wounding of Hero of Russia Delimkhanov.
“We are worried, like everyone else, about the Hero of Russia. We hope that in the near future there will be more precise information about what happened,” he said. At the same time, Peskov added that the Ukrainian media regularly spread fakes, so he urged to wait for “real information”.
