“Today I have decided to create a sanctions list and include in it U.S. President Barack Obama, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton, and European Parliament President Martin Schulz,” Kadyrov wrote on Instagram.

“The entire world has witnessed the tragedies of the peoples of Libya, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and recently Ukraine. Under the guise of exporting democracy, civilians, women, old people, and children are killed, and cities and religious holy sites are destroyed.

Most frequently, it is the blood of Muslims that is shed,” Kadyrov said.
