West arms Islamists fighting in Syria - Kadyrov

Grozny, April 1, Interfax - The United States and Western countries train and arm terrorists fighting in Syria, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said.

"These terrorists are raised, armed, and nursed by the West, and trained by special services of NATO countries. They are carrying out the task of causing Syria to collapse and weakening Islamic countries," Kadyrov posted on his Instagram account.

"Where is the democracy of Europe and the U.S.? Why are they silent? Why do they allocate hundreds of millions dollars, weapons and special means to bandits opposed to the legitimate Syrian authorities who are killing women, the elderly and children? How many more thousands of Syrians have to die so that NATO countries will stop supporting terrorists?" Kadyrov said.

"Amid this background daily statements and threats to introduce sanctions regarding Russia, which supported the results of the Crimean referendum and managed to prevent bloodshed on the peninsula, look simply blasphemous," he said.

"The West does not recognize democracy and people's will, if this will is not in the interest of the U.S., NATO and the European Union," Kadyrov said.
