This (collapse of the USSR - ed.) Is a tragedy. I am a greater communist than anyone else. In the Soviet Union, if a person fell or froze, a crowd immediately gathered to help him. Have you seen this now? Step over people - and move on. Previously, if someone offended a woman, he immediately got a “pumpkin”, but now they pass by. The weak are beaten. In my life I once raised my voice to my mother. She was wrong, but I misbehaved. I apologized to her, but I can’t forgive myself. And such a country was destroyed by the Americans. About 80 people in the Kremlin sat for this
- Aslakhanov said during an interview with the publication Forpost (Sevastopol).
Aslakhanov noted that he did not support Dzhokhar Dudaev in 1992, when he advocated the secession of Chechnya, adding that the media at that time “duplicated the untruth”.
Dudaev was with me three times. Once I met him in Grozny. I told him: “You came to bring suffering to the Chechen people. Russia is bad now, but is a great power. She will crush you and me. ” So I told him. If the independence of Chechnya would benefit the Chechen people, I would be the first to do so. But I know that we only need to be with Russia. With Russia, we are power. Here is my position
- emphasized Aslakhanov.
Then there was a second meeting with Dudaev, I don’t remember what issue. And for the third meeting, he came to me at the White House. I accepted him, and he asked for help in getting him a visa to some Scandinavian country. I replied that these were not my questions. I did not satisfy him. But for all my negative attitude, Dudaev treated me very well. And then, after a while, they sent me the following message from him: “Tell Aslambek that I went very far”
- added Aslakhanov.
Aslakhanov touched on other topics. He was glad that Russia has the best special forces in the world, "the enemies are afraid of him." There are good anti-terror experts in Russia, “a lot of terrorist attacks have been warned.” At the same time, he is saddened by the fact that the Americans do not understand that friendship between Russia and the United States is beneficial to everyone. He called Putin a balanced person, "always finding the right words."
