According to Newsweek, in a video shared Wednesday on Twitter, Kadyrov said that “the Ukraine issue is over” and that he was “concerned about Poland”.

“After Ukraine, if we are in command, then in six seconds we will show you what we are capable of,” Kadyrov said.

Poland has been one of the countries that has been enthusiastically supplying Ukraine with weapons to help it fight Russia since the conflict between Russia and Ukraine broke out in late February.

The latest statements by Chechen leader Kadyrov have touched the concerns of some Polish leaders that, Russia capable of launching an attack on Poland in the future.

Although President Putin has not given any precise indication as to whether that is, Poland’s Deputy Foreign Minister Pawel Jablonski stated in an interview with Al Jazeera at the end of March that he is certain, Russian leaders want to attack Poland.

“At the same time, we’re pretty sure that (Putin) won’t do it now because he’s too preoccupied with what’s happening in Ukraine,” Jablonski added.

The video of the Chechen leader warning Poland has reached nearly 25,000 views as of Wednesday evening, May 25.

In the video, Mr Kadyrov also asked Poland to “beg for an official forgiveness for what it did to our ambassador”.

Mr. Kadyrov seems to be referring to the incident that took place earlier this month when Ambassador Russia in Poland, Sergey Andreev, was splashed with red paint at a Victory Day event in Poland.

This painting move is to protest Russia’s war in Ukraine. Mr. Andreev and his delegation were forced to leave the area after the incident.

“We will not ignore it. Remember that,” Mr. Kadyrov declared.

It remains unclear when or where the video was shot. Chechnya leader Kadyrov is not the only ally of President Putin to point the nose at Poland in recent weeks.

Oleg Morozov, a member of Russia’s parliament and top leader of the United Russia party, warned earlier this month that Poland should be “first in line for denuclearization after Ukraine”.
