Ramzan Kadyrov, the President of Chechnya, posted a video of Chechen fighters that had "To Kyiv!” patches on their uniforms.
The video posted on Kadyrov's Telegram channel shows a group of Chechen fighters lined up on a parade ground black and white chest patches on their uniforms. In addition, Kadyrov demonstrated pieces of armored hardware that had the same inscription on them.
"The Kyiv elite, sitting in warm armchairs in their golden offices, should know that warriors, whose hearts are filled with rage because of your criminal orders, will knock on their doors soon,” Ramzan Kadyrov wrote in a caption to the video.
"You will face the consequences of what you have been doing for the last eight years. You can be sure of this," Kadyrov also said.
Chechen fighters are ready to storm any settlement if such an order comes from Supreme Commander Vladimir Putin, Ramzan Kadyrov added.
The head of the Voronezh region, Alexander Gusev, confirmed the death of Major General Vladimir Zavadsky.
