Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov refuted data cited in an article by The Wall Street Journal that Russian President Vladimir Putin even at the beginning of the special operation, he allegedly instructed the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov eliminate the head of the Kyiv regime Vladimir Zelensky.

A little earlier, the newspaper also wrote that Kadyrov began to carry out shadow mobilization in Chechnya. For sending to the front, local authorities, according to the interlocutor of the publication, promised residents up to 300 thousand rubles. Some were forcibly taken to the war and threatened with prison if they refused.

“This is complete nonsense,” Peskov explained in an interview with TASS.

The WSJ, citing representatives of Ukrainian intelligence, reported that “Kadyrov’s military is responsible for cleaning up the occupied settlements.” There they are looking for SBU agents and partisans. Soldiers from Chechnya do “the dirtiest work,” the authors of the article concluded.

Earlier, the Public News Service reported that the US Congress may refuse to help the Kyiv regime if Ukraine continues to refuse peace talks.
