After the decision of the US Treasury to impose sanctions on the closest relatives of Kadyrov, he proposed to impose sanctions on all his children and recalled the restrictions that the EU introduced in 2014 against his horses
The head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov, in response to the sanctions imposed by Washington against his family, said that the US Treasury should include in the sanctions lists of all his minor children. Kadyrov stated this on his Telegram channel.
“They [the United States] stubbornly put me on the sanctions list, and this time, for some reason, they even included members of my family. Among them is a daughter who has just come of age. Why stretch the rubber? Come on, turn on, Americans, all my children. There are 14 of them, the youngest, the twins Hasan and Hussein, are five years old. Add them to your list too. Above, they did not disdain horses and grooms when they imposed sanctions against them because of their connection with me, — he said.
On September 15, Washington tightened sanctions against:
- daughters Aishat (Minister of Culture of Chechnya), Khadizhat (Karina, head of the Grozny department of preschool education) and Tabarik Kadyrov;
- wife Medni Kadyrova;
- Chechen beauty contestants Fatima Khazuyeva and singer Aminat Akhmadova, whom the Ministry of Finance considers to be members of Kadyrov's inner circle.
- cousin Ramzan Kadyrov and First Deputy Head of Administration of the Head and Government of Chechnya Turpal-Ali Ibragimov.
