Kadyrov: He ruled Chechnya with an iron fist for 15 years. In early September, he suddenly withdrew

. On September 3, Kadyrov, now 45, said that he should take an "indefinite" vacation. Kadyrov has ruled Chechnya with an iron fist since 2007. He said, "I realize that I have been in this position for a long time, and I think it is time to leave."

His "unexpected" remark has aroused various speculations. Since he has made similar remarks before and has not left his post, this has triggered speculation about whether he is seriously considering resigning or just seeking "favors" from the Kremlin. Some analysts pointed out that this kind of rhetoric usually comes from what he wants from Putin, at least to obtain public support. According to Kadyrov's latest statement on September 6, he does not intend to step down as Chechen head of state in the near future.

At the end of September, Kadyrov again attracted the attention of the media. On September 30 local time, the signing ceremony of the Treaty on the Accession of Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporoge and Kherson to the Russian Federation was held in the Georgiev Hall of the Kremlin. Leaders, ministers, senators and representatives of Russian regions were invited to attend. When Putin made a speech at the signing ceremony, Kadyrov was caught in tears by the media. Putin said at the time: "People passed on their spiritual ties to future generations. Despite all kinds of tests, they have been full of love for Russia for many years. No one can destroy this feeling in our hearts."

On October 1 local time, when he learned that Russian troops had withdrawn from the settlement of Yeoman (also known as Liman) in Ukraine, Kadyrov issued an angry statement, calling for stricter measures, saying that the use of low yield nuclear weapons in Ukraine should be considered. Divideman is an important town in the north of Donetsk region. It is reported that this city is the main stronghold and logistics hub of the Russian army in Donetsk region, and an important supply center for the Russian side to push troops and armaments to the front. Kadyrov criticized that the failure was due to the lack of basic military logistics. Colonel Alexander Lapin, the commander of the Russian army in Kampong, was a "mediocre person" and suggested that he be demoted and deprived of his medal.

reported that although Putin's other high-level allies had suggested that Russia might need to resort to nuclear weapons, Kadyrov's appeal was the most "urgent and clear". Moreover, this does not seem to be the first time he has complained like this. For some time, Kadyrov has been disappointed with the slow progress of Russia, complaining that the Russian army is "too slow and inefficient".

It is reported that Kadyrov has always played an important role in the Russian Ukrainian conflict, such as recruiting soldiers to fight side by side with the Russian army, and Chechen troops have always been a part of the Russian vanguard at the front. It is reported that the troops of the Chechen Republic have successively participated in fierce fighting in Mariupol, North Donetsk and other regions this year. According to previous analysis, Kadyrov's "resignation" statement at the beginning of September may be based on consideration of officers and soldiers and armaments in the region, but in fact, after the outbreak of the Russian Ukrainian conflict, Kadyrov has been firmly supporting Putin's decision.

Caucasian strongmen: they love guns and take tigers as pets

According to public data, Chechnya Republic is an autonomous communist country under the jurisdiction of the North Caucasus Federal District of the Russian Federation, and Kadyrov has led Chechnya for 15 years.

Kadyrov is one of Putin's most trusted leaders. The "alliance" between the two can be traced back to 2007 or earlier. Kadyrov's father, Ahmed Kadyrov, was killed in an attack in 2004. On March 1, 2007, he was nominated by Putin as the candidate for President of the Chechen Republic. The next day, he was elected President of the Chechen Republic through the vote of the Chechen Parliament. Later, he was renamed the head of the Chechen Republic in 2011.

According to global figures, Kadyrov lost 420 relatives in the Chechen war, his father was killed by bombing, and he was assassinated five times. Kadyrov, who grew up in this environment, is decisive, has thousands of special forces, loves guns, takes tigers as pets, and is given a nickname by the outside world - Caucasian strongman. Kadyrov is recognized as the most pro Kremlin Chechen politician, and has always kept pace with Putin, who "promoted him at one hand".

Putin and Kadyrov

In 2010, Kadyrov publicly called Putin an "idol". Global people report that, at the proposal of Kadyrov, a street in Grozny, the capital of Chechnya, was named after Putin. At the naming conference, Kadyrov even said, "If necessary, I am ready to die for Putin. Because of him, we have a peaceful and peaceful Chechnya today."

After the outbreak of the Russian Ukrainian conflict, Kadyrov has also been firmly supporting Putin's decision. According to some analysts, it is not surprising that Kadyrov participated in the conflict in Ukraine, because the Chechen army had done so before. The influence of Chechen troops in the conflict is not clear. Some news points out that they are one of the main forces. In addition, Kadyrov claimed that he went to Ukraine in the conflict.

analyzed that Kadyrov regarded Putin as a "sponsor". When it is necessary to help Russia by providing combat, Kadyrov will take the opportunity to show the strength of Chechen troops, and then get some rewards. According to the report, Kadyrov is also good at using social media to create a personal image. Some analysts pointed out that he could even say "the most outrageous, gorgeous and provocative words", and all the information was like self promotion to get more attention.
