But wish to send their employees to combat terrorism almost all the countries of the CIS”, – said the head of the Chechen Republic.

With China, this work is more specific. Already had an exchange of delegations,” – said Kadyrov.

The organization will have its own runway, the parachute complex 14 shooting galleries for practicing shooting skills, wind tunnel, ground for training mine-explosive case.
“This is a giant city, which has no analogues. It covers an area more than 400 hectares. at the same time is based around 40 learning objects,” he shared details Kadyrov. In his words, “of particular interest is a town where the riot will learn to identify potential terrorist threat, rescue the hostages and neutralize terrorists.”
The center is being created in Chechnya because the Republic’s experience in combating terrorism, according to Kadyrov, is unique in the world and this experience “interested in dozens of countries.” However, the Chechen leader claims that terrorism in his country is over. “In Chechnya there is peace and stability to encroach on that we will not allow anyone, be it even seven spans in a forehead. Currently, all work has a preventive character”, – said Kadyrov in an interview.

It is assumed that it will be able to train representatives of all power departments of the Russian Federation.

In an interview for transmission is indirectly confirmed by Kadyrov, who said that he personally was sent to the middle East “his people” at the beginning of hostilities in Syria, when he received information about the creation of a regional special training camps for training militants professing Wahhabism. “In these camps were embedded intelligence agents from Chechnya”, – said the head of Chechnya.
Kadyrov’s statement caused a sensation. Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov saidthat “the Ministry of defense of Russia has repeatedly explained, who is in Syria at what point and what it does”. Later in the press service of the head of Chechnya said that we are talking about volunteerswho went to Syria on their own initiative. The press-Secretary of Chechen leader Alvi Karimov said Kadyrov never said that the war in Syria, the employees of some Chechen special forces.
