A group of over 70 political analysts from around the world specializing on Russia, which are members of the so-called "Valdai International Debating Club", created by the Kremlin back during Putin, visited the occupied city of Jokhar the other day.
Kadyrov's men were the ones who stated that political analysts were "surprised by what they saw in Chechnya ".
"Grozny (Jokhar - Kavkaz Center ) is restored, ruins gone. We have not seen any ruins where we were driven, and it is impressive", Alexander Rar, the expert of German Council on Foreign Policy said.
"The main impression that was made is: Kadyrov is absolutely loyal to Russia", as the political scientist added.
The meeting's participants emphasized that they were surprised by how complimentary Kadyrov spoke of the former MFA of CRI Akhmed Zakayev, who lives in London.
According to Rar, Kadyrov called his former opponent as person who is well-known and loved in the country as a talented actor.
"Akhmed Zakaev is an actor, a very good actor, he can play diverse roles. We invite him to come back and to contribute to the restoration of art and culture of Chechnya", Kadyrov said.
He also added that "we do not want to lose such a professional culture worker and I think we'll find him job according to his qualifications".
As Russian media recalled in this connection, in mid-August Kadyrov called former Ichkerian generals and ministers to return to their homeland and guaranteed them security.
For instance, the proposal was given to Akhmed Zakayev by Kadyrov's envoy Magomed Khanbiyev, who met with Zakayev's trustee Yaragi Abdullayev and then held talks with Zakayev by telephone.
In response Zakayev stated that he "always wanted to return home" and promised Kadyrov that he would think about it and respond to the invitation in September.
We would like to remind that earlier Zakayev held talks with Kadyrov through his intermediaries, a surgeon Hassan Baiev and Chechen singer Timur Mutsurayev, who last summer annnounced that he had defected to Kadyrov's camp.
