Feud Declared against Chechen Separatist Leader

Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov accused Chechen separatist leader, Akhmed Zakayev, who is currently residing in the UK, of organizing the recent guerrilla attack on Kadyrov’s family village, Tsentoroy. Kadyrov stated that relatives of the attack victims have already “declared a feud with Zakayev.” Indeed, the ancient tradition of blood feud is still alive in Chechnya. However, as the Chechen Presidential spokesman, Alvi Karimov, explained, Kadyrov himself has not declared a feud. “He is the head of the republic and acts in the framework of the law,” Karimov stated.
