Peskov: no determination has been arrived at to institute martial law in response to the aggression of marauders.


Decisions on the introduction of martial law are the prerogative of the Head of State. So, the Russian President’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov commented on the initiative of the leader of Chechnya to introduce martial law in certain regions of the country with the maximum level of response, transmits CASS.

“It is the prerogative of the President of the Russian Federation. No decision has been made so far,” the Kremlin spokesman said.

Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyrov, commenting on the attack in the Bryansk region, called for the introduction of martial law in some Russian regions with the maximum level of response instead of the currently established average.

“Yes, it may be inconvenient for local residents, but they will be safe,” he wrote on his Telegram channel.

According to Kadyrov, the participants in the attack in the Bryansk region should be “treated as harshly, as harshly and even cruelly as possible”. He also called for “shoot to kill” and “bring to justice” the families involved in the attack, who may be living in Russia.

On March 2, the head of the Bryansk region, Alexander Bogomaz, announced the attack of Ukrainian saboteurs on the Klimovsky district and the shelling of a car in Lyubechany. Two men were killed and a child was injured. The governor also reported a drone attack on a residential building in Sushany. The responsibility for the attack was claimed by the “Russian Volunteer Corps” (a unit of immigrants from Russia which takes part in the hostilities in Ukraine alongside Kiev). Russian President Vladimir Putin called the incident a terrorist attack. Later, the FSB press service reported that the saboteurs were “expelled” from the Bryansk region to the territory of Ukraine and dealt a severe blow to them. On March 3, the head of the administration of the village of Novy Ropsk, located between Lyubechany and Sushany, said that two different sabotage and reconnaissance groups had attacked the villages. According to him, in Sushany, the saboteurs “just shot and scared people”, filmed a video and “quickly left”. They also “hit, possibly with a grenade launcher, a residential building, which was completely burned down,” Samusev said. One person was slightly injured, he said.
