Chechen President blames America for Boston bombing, ‘they were raised inthe US’ so seek ‘roots of evil in America’

Chechnya’s Russian-backed president has hit out at America for killing one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers and blamed the US for molding them into terrorists.

President Ramzan Kadyrov, a former Chechen rebel himself, told US authorities that ‘any attempt to draw a connection’ between Chechnya and the brothers was ‘futile’.

In a Russian-language statement on Instagram, he added: “They were raised in the United States, and their attitudes and beliefs were formed there. It is necessary to seek the roots of this evil in America. The whole world must struggle against terrorism — that we know better than anyone else. We hope for the recovery of all the victims, and we mourn with the Americans.”

Chechen-born Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died from gunshot wounds and possible blast injuries after a fierce gun battle rocked the Watertown area of Boston hours after a police officer was shot dead at the nearby MIT campus. His 19-year-old brother, Dzhokha, fled the shoot out and was on the run, reportedly captured late Friday.

Muslim militants from Chechnya have a long history of unleashing devastating terror attacks on Russia, but the allegations of involvement in the Boston Marathon blasts would mark the first time they have targeted the West.
