Kadyrov cannot hold on to his cousin and close ally, Adam Delimkhanov. The Chechen leader reported this on Telegram.
Delimkhanov took an active part in the invasion of Ukraine, and was reported to have previously participated in the Siege of Mariupol.
– I cannot contact Adam Delimkhanov in any way. He doesn’t make contact. I ask the Ukrainian secret service to provide information about the exact location and the sites that were bombed so that I can find my dear brother. I promise you a generous reward and ask you for help, Kadyrov wrote in a short message at 11.00 Norwegian time.
Russia’s state-run news agency shared a statement from State Duma member Dmitry Kuznetsov at 11:10 a.m. Wednesday that Delimkhanov is “alive and well.” The statement follows rumors in Ukraine that Delimkhanov was killed in an attack. Russian state television channel Zvezda It was reported on 11.04 that Delimkhanov was alive but injured.
The last sign of life from Delmikhanov’s Telegram channel is on Tuesday afternoon.
Delimkhanov has been a member of the Russian State Duma since 2007. Two weeks ago, he was in the spotlight when he criticized Yevgeny Prigozhin, calling the Wagner leader a “blogger”.
Delimkhanov addressed Prigozhin directly, who he thought was just complaining about the problems, in a video message.
– If you don’t understand, you can contact us and give us the time and place. Delimkhanov said: Then we can explain to you what you do not understand.
– I became a blogger who screams and shouts to the whole world about all the problems. Stop yelling and yelling, go on.
The letter drew a harsh response from Dmitry Utkin, one of Wagner’s senior soldiers, who said that “some citizens” should be ashamed.
– We are always ready to talk man to man, continued.
