Pro-Kremlin Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has claimed spies from his region of Russia are being sent to infiltrate and assist Moscow in its bombing campaign in Syria.Quoting Kadyrov, it said that the "best fighters" from mostly Muslim Chechnya have managed to create an "intricate agent network directly inside ISIS," although some have been killed.ISIS fighters in December released a video showing the beheading of an ethnic Chechen man who had made a filmed confession that he worked for Russian special services to spy on ISIS in Syria.At the same time, some Muslim Chechens and other Russians have gone to Syria to support the ISIS extremists.
