Leaders of the group also promised to send a delegation to Bangladesh in May in order to study the situation with refugees and assess the necessary amount of additional aid.
The Akhmat Kadyrov Regional Public Foundation was launched in 2004 in memory of Akhmat-Haji Kadyrov, the former Chechen president and father of the current head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov. The group is headed by Akhmat Kadyrov’s widow Aimani. In recent years, it has repeatedly delivered humanitarian aid to various regions affected by armed conflicts, such as Somalia and Syria.

The Myanmar government accused Islamist insurgents of attacks on military bases and the civilian population, but international human rights groups claimed that the accusations were a part of a disinformation campaign through which the young Myanmar democracy wanted to force the Rohingya out of Rakhine province. They also accused Myanmar’s leader, Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, of inciting anti-Rohingya sentiment and tarnishing humanitarian aid workers in internet statements.
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, known for his strong pro-Muslim position, has spoken in support of the Rohingya since the very beginning of the crisis. In September 2017, he asked his supporters to show solidarity with fellow Muslims in Myanmar and blasted world leaders for their failure to condemn the Myanmar authorities for what he called the ” elimination ” of the Rohingya from the country.
About a million people (according to the police estimates) answered Kadyrov’s call and attended the pro-Rohingya rally in the Chechen capital Grozny.
