pryhozhyn and kadyrov Armies Were Created to Suppress Potential Uprisings in russia
The armies of “putin’s chef” yevhen pryhozhyn and leader of Chechnia ramzan kadyrov were created to suppress potential uprisings in russia. However, the kremlin also used them in its war against Ukraine. Andrii Cherniak, a representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, stated this for “RBK-Ukraine”.
“pryhozhyn and kadyrov are people who, in order to preserve putin's power, have the right to create their own armies. These armies were created primarily to suppress any potential uprisings within russia," Andrii Cherniak explained.
According to the DIU representative, the demonstration of "well-trained and brave" kadyrovites is primarily aimed at the russian public. Today, in the full-scale war against Ukraine, kadyrovites are used at the front as blocking units, preventing newly mobilized or other soldiers from retreating. That is, the main task of kadyrov’s army is to intimidate the russians.
