`If they get control of the Caucasus, you could say they`ll get control of virtually all of Russia, because the Caucasus is our backbone,` Kadyrov said. `The Russian government needs to work out a strategy, it needs to attack,` the Chechen president said.

`…Georgia, South Ossetia, Ukraine, all this will go on and on. It`s Russia`s private affliction. Why should we always suffer if we can eradicate this for good? We are a great power, we have everything – an army, technology. We need to attack.` Kadirov said.

The president of Chechnya accused the west of provoking last year’s war in Caucasus.
