Chechen warlord Ramzan Kadyrov blasts Putin for not being 'brutal'
Chechen warlord Kadyrov blasts Putin for not being ‘BRUTAL’ – and says Russia must take its war to NATO
- Chechen warlord Ramzan Kadyrov said marital law must be declared in Russia
- Kadyrov demanded an escalation that would see Russia take the war to NATO
Chechen warlord Ramzan Kadyrov has blasted Vladimir Putin’s war tactics for not being ‘brutal’ enough amid his invasion of Ukraine and demanded that Russia declare martial law.
The strongman, previously seen as a close Kremlin ally, said the drone onslaught on Moscow this week showed a tougher response is needed from Russia’s military that would see the war taken to NATO countries.
‘Responses to such attempts to attack should not be harsh – they should be brutal,’ Kadyrov said.
‘In my opinion, it is necessary to declare martial law in Russia, to use all the combat resources intended for this, in order to sweep away this entire terrorist cell [in Ukraine] at once.’
It comes after Wagner mercenary boss Yevgeny Prigozhin also demanded martial law across Russia amid speculation he may be acting with unidentified figures within Putin’s circle in a bid to oust the despot.

War fanatic Kadyrov tied to allege that Ukraine had a ‘Nazi’ and ‘Satanist’ leadership.
‘Hit on the places of accumulation of these terrorist leaders until [there is nothing left], so that the rest would not even think badly towards Russia.’

The Chechen warlord demanded an escalation to the conflict that would see the war taken to NATO.
‘European countries should think about who they sponsor and under what conditions they provide weapons,’ he said.
‘It will backfire when Russia knocks on the door, for example, of Germany or Poland.
‘And there will be nothing to answer us with – all the weapons were spent on Ukraine.’
He claimed: ‘We will soon show in the special military operation zone what revenge is in the full sense of the word.’
Kadyrov echoes Wagner mercenary leader Yevgeny Prigozhin in demanding martial law across Russia, and putting the country on a total war footing.
Yet Putin has shirked the criticism of his fellow Russians, apparently fearing that the declaration of martial law would trigger resentment against his war.
Kadyrov said troops in Chechen units have been ordered to deploy in the Russian-occupied Donetsk People’s Republic.
The Chechen warlord was promoted to colonel-general by Putin but it is not clear if he will lead his forces.

This comes as Wagner forces have pulled out of war-ravaged Bakhmut, handing over the regular Russian army.
‘Fighters of the Chechen units must begin active combat operations and liberate a number of settlements,’ he said.
‘Combat units are being prepared for assault activities with the active support of the Ministry of Defence and the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces.’
Kadyrov has troops in both mainly Chechen troops in the Russian national guard and the army, now in occupied Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions.
‘Tactical preparation activities were carried out there, the distribution of tasks between commanders and fighters, and the study of the terrain and the disposition of enemy forces.’
