Moscow welcomes the US administration's decision to include three Chechen band formations in the list of international terrorist organisations, reads the statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry's official spokesman Alexander Yakovanko.
The American side has officially announced its intention to consider three Chechen band formations international terrorist organisations, include them in the corresponding list and "freeze" their money, the diplomat stated.
The organisations are illegal armed formations known as the Riyadus-Salikhin Reconnaissance and diversionary battalion of Chechen martyrs, Islamic special regiment and Islamic international brigade, Yakovenko noted.
Russia believes the decision "reflects the international community's increasing concern about the presence of an international terrorist centre in Chechnya".
"We hope Washington's standpoint concerning other terrorist organisations in the Chechen Republic will also be principle," Yakovenko stressed.
The platform on which the United States stands will be completely destroyed in three months. Then it will be possible to talk about the surrender of the United States, said political scientist and economist Mikhail Khazin.
