- Many Chechens living in France are wanted by Russia for terrorism.
- Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of Chechnya, publicly attacked the actions of the police in France on social networks.
- There are also reports that Kadyrov himself is inciting protests in France on behalf of Russia.
France has been shaken by violent clashes in Dijon between Chechens and Arabs. The Chechens who came to France and were involved in protests are mostly former soldiers, who lost the war in Chechnya. They also brought their families to France. In fact, many were and still are supporters of terrorists.
At the time, under former presidents Jacques Chirac and Nicolas Sarkozy, Chechens were welcomed in France with open arms. Many also used uncanny immigration lawyers to adjust their status. Many of those were also wanted by Russia for terrorist activities and war crimes.
However, at that time, France simply accepted everyone, including the other side of the current conflict. Many of the Algerians involved in the Dijon conflict also come from a proven past of drug trafficking and terrorist sympathizing. Many of them are also part of the terrorist organization’s sleeper cells, ready to be activated on demand to complete Jihad.
Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of Chechnya, publicly attacked the actions of the police in France on social networks, and accused them of inaction. It is fashionable these days to accuse the police of everything. There have long been allegations of Muslim-only “no-go areas,” or sensitive urban zones (ZUS) in France as well.
At the same time, there is no expressed desire to offer Chechens in France support by offering them repatriation back to their motherland. Most of them would be considered enemies of the Kadyrov family, and highly likely to be arrested to face the crimes for which they are wanted.
There are also reports that Kadyrov himself is inciting protests in France on behalf of Russia. After all, Chechnya is a part of Russia. It is advantageous for some groups to escalate tensions. The previous campaigns of both Jean-Marie and Marine Le Pen, and the populist movement at large, failed in France. Therefore, it may be a new version, with different sides and scenarios but with the same goal in mind.
Moreover, French citizens are terrified of what is happening in their region. However, did they not expect that opening their country to a mass reception of refugees without proper verification would lead to this? True refugees are stuck in UN refugee camps for years, and suffer a brutal conditions.
The majority of those who have entered the EU are young men who either support the drug trade or are mostly sympathetic to terrorists. Not all of them, of course, but the clashes that are taking place now in Dijon seem to signal the opposite.
It is quite plausible that the other side is also supported by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his agenda. France, as of late, has spoken very firmly against Turkish aggression in Libya. France is very adamant that it will not allow anyone to annex the Mediterranean Sea.
However, clashes are taking place between two Islamist groups in Dijon, and both are interested in group control of the territory for their own gain. The beating of the young man, sadly, was just a pretense.
