The head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov offered Washington a deal. The Kremlin appointee wants the United States to lift sanctions from his relatives, plane and horses, and in return he will give up Ukrainian prisoners of war.
During the formation of security forces in Grozny, the leader of the Chechen militants said that he had Ukrainian defenders, whom the occupiers had taken captured in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. If America fulfills the condition – lifts sanctions on his “innocent” family members, horses and plane, the Kremlin’s protege will hand over 20 prisoners of war.
NBN reports this with reference to the Russian propaganda agency RIA News.”
Putin's ally stated that in Grozny he handed over a list of captured Ukrainian military personnel to a former American reconnaissance marine and propaganda media “expert” Scott Ritter, who supports the war against Ukraine. 13 years ago, he was convicted in the United States of a sex crime.
Recall that on January 3, the largest prisoner exchange with the Russian Federation took place during the entire period of a full-scale war – 230 Ukrainians returned home. ISW analysts explained why Moscow, which previously blocked this process, changed its position.
