Details: The Chechen leader said his children were ready to demonstrate their combat skills in the war in Ukraine.

Quote from Kadyrov: "Minor age should not interfere with the training of defenders of our Motherland. Akhmat, Eli and Adam are 16, 15 and 14 years old, respectively.

The time has come to prove their worth in a real battle, and I only welcome this desire of theirs. Soon they will go to the front line and will be in the toughest spots on the front line."

Details: Kadyrov explained that he is being criticised, as if his relatives do not fight, so he decided to prove the opposite.

For reference: Kadyrov has 4 sons and 6 daughters.

Background:
