File PhotoRussia’s federal Chechen Republic leader Ramzan Kadirov has slammed Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian jet on Nov. 24 as a “betrayal,” saying “Ankara will regret” the incident.
Kadirov posted a message through his social networking website after the downing, saying that those who speak of “friendship and cooperation” cannot act so traitorously, according to the Itar Tass news agency.
The whole Chechen community will stand behind Russian President Vladimir Putin and himself, Kadirov vowed.
“It is my duty to announce that I and the Chechen Republic and community will follow the orders of the Russian president, no matter how difficult they are” he added.
