Ilyas Akhmadov Aide for the International Terrorist (Shamil) Basayev…

Back in April of 2004, Ilyas Akhmadov was granted political asylum in the US where he currently resides. Ilyas Akhmadov has now recently published a book and it seems to be with the support of the US Federal Budget. That means it is supported by the Federal Government of the USA and that is where Russia gets perturbed…

The Russian Foreign Ministry has said that Ilyas Akhmadov “passing himself off as the Foreign Minister of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria is in fact a former militant who served as an aide for the international terrorist [Shamil] Basayev.” The Ministry also said that Akhmadov “is a criminal put on an international wanted list who is trying to redeem post factum the criminal regime of Dzhokhar Dudayev and Aslan Maskhadov” – the leaders of Chechen militants.

“Nevertheless, he [Akhmadov] is being provided with a platform in organizations such as the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) which are financed from the US Federal budget,” the Foreign Ministry added. “We expect that the US authorities draw respective conclusions and take measures to clamp down on such ambiguous events which virtually play into the hands of terrorists’ accomplices.”

Hummm, Does that sound like a good way for America’s tax money to be spent?
