Pompeo announced sanctions against Ramzan Kadyrov




The sanctions are imposed because of Kadyrov's “involvement in serious human rights violations” in Chechnya.





US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo on Monday, July 20, announced the inclusion of the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov in the sanctions list.

“Today, the state Department is imposing sanctions against Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of the Chechen Republic within the Russian Federation,” the statement said.

It is noted that the sanctions are imposed because of Kadyrov's "involvement in serious human rights violations” in Chechnya.

In a statement, the State Department clarified that the state Department “condemned threats of violence by the head of the Russian Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, against two journalists in connection with their coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic.”





In addition to the head of Chechnya, restrictions apply to his wife Medni Kadyrova, as well as daughters Aishat Kadyrova and Khadizhat Kadyrova. “We will encourage countries with similar views to take similar measures,” Pompeo said.

Being blacklisted means being banned from entering the United States. Kadyrov was previously included in the US Treasury's sanctions list.

Earlier, Pompeo said that the state Department will include the Russian gas pipelines Nord Stream 2 and the Turkish stream among the projects that are subject to the sanctions of the law on countering America's adversaries through sanctions.
