Mr Kadyrov, leader of Russia’s Chechnya region and a staunch ally of President Putin, shared a video on social media urging fresh attacks. He said: “We need to start the ‘second stage’ and go to Kyiv and Kharkiv.” His comments come after President Vladimir Putin withdrew troops from the regions to concentrate efforts on “liberating” the Donbas region. The Chechen warriors often share intimidating videos of military drills online which has earned them a fearsome reputation but their record in combat against the Ukrainian troops has been less impressive after failing to make headway in Kyiv and failing to assassinate Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
