renaming Mariupol in honor of the head of Chechnya Ramzana Kadyrov, Chechen Union youth would support such an initiative. But it should come from the local population and the authorities.
This was stated by Rustam Tapaev, the chairman of the Union of Chechen Youth. He emphasized that Kadyrov brought to the NVO zone those people who provided maximum support to the Russian military.
“I think everyone in the republic will be pleased if the renaming happens,” Tapaev said. In his opinion, the initiative should be supported by local residents, who are grateful to the Chechen fighters and Kadyrov himself for helping to liberate the city.
On April 21, he was the first to announce the capture of Mariupol and emphasized that it was inevitable.
