Chechen leader and Kremlin’s puppet Ramzan Kadyrov has said that he plans to send his three teenage sons to the war against Ukraine.

Kadyrov wrote on his Telegram channel on Oct. 3 that his sons Akhmat, Ali and Adam, aged 14, 15 and 16, have had military training “from very early age.”

“Young age should not stand in the way of the training of the defenders of our homeland...,” Kadyrov wrote.

“The time has come to prove themselves in real combat, and I only welcome this desire of theirs. Soon they will go to the frontline and will be in the hottest areas of the battle.”

The head of Chechnya said that he has been criticized for the fact that his relatives are not fighting, and that "soon" he would prove the opposite.

Following Russian dictator Vladimir Putin's call for a "partial" mobilization, Kadyrov claimed that his republic had exceeded the "deflated plan" by 254% and that there would be no mobilization there.

According to the Ukrainian military’s General Staff, since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the aggressor state has lost about 60,430 of its troops, 2,380 tanks, 1,405 artillery systems, 176 air defense systems, 265 planes, 228 helicopters, 1,026 drones, 15 ships and boats, and more.
