The threat of another attack by extremists on the part of Regardie in Chechnya is minimal, said first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on defense Alexander Sherin. His assessment he shared in an interview with “Tape.ru” on Friday, March 24.
“Even if repeated provocation, it will be reflected, and this will be followed by a total sweep. The guys who was down the caves to hide, heads will roll,” said the MP, commenting on the enforcement of national guard troops in the North Caucasus on high alert.
According to him, Chechen militants do not realize the true capabilities of the Russian army. “They continue to live in your world. That is broken, not secured, an exhausted army, which was in the early 1990s, the army has long ended,” — said he, stressing that Russian troops equipped with modern weapons.
In particular, the Deputy said, Resguarda can realize the cleansing of gangs from the air. “The living force of the enemy destroyed in this way: rising in the night, a helicopter with thermal imaging and all the illegal accumulation of militants are eliminated,” added Sherin.
Earlier Friday, the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov said that militants attacked the military unit of Regardie in Chechnya, in order to seize weapons for a terrorist attack.
On the night of 24 March, a group of armed terrorists tried to penetrate into the territory of the town military units in the Naur district of the Republic. The result of the ensuing fighting killed six asguardian, three wounded. Troops eliminated six militants.
Upon attack criminal case is brought.
