On the Telegram messaging app, Kadyrov posted a video of his sons, Akhmat, 16, Eli, 15, and Adam, 14, firing guns. He wrote that they will soon be “in the most difficult sections of the line of contact.”

He said the teens had been trained for combat “almost from their younger years” and insisted he “wasn’t kidding”.

“It’s time to prove yourself in a real fight, I can only welcome this wish,” Kadyrov said.

Russian government spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded to Kadyrov’s comments by saying: “This is a very emotional moment. The heads of region have the right to express their point of view. Even in difficult times, emotions must be excluded from any evaluation.”

However, Peskov praised the Chechen leader’s “heroic contributions” to the military operation in Ukraine.

“Ramzan, you rock man!”

Yevgeny Prigozhin, founder of the Wagner Group of mercenaries and known as Putin’s chef, congratulated Kadyrov for his comments.

“Ramzan, you rock man!” Prigozhin said in a statement. “All these bastards should be sent barefoot to the front lines with automatic weapons.”
