Parents of armed insurgents in Chechnya will have no rights whatsoever as long as their children continue their armed fight, said Muslim Khuchiev, mayor of the Chechen capital, Grozny. Chechnya's official Vaynakh TV channel carried a report about a meeting on 7 April 2010 at which local officials, including Chechnya's "human rights ombudsman" Nurdi Nukhazhiev, openly threatened the relatives of insurgents.

Speaking to residents of Grozny's Staropromyslovsky district, Khuchiev said: "We will treat you the same way as your children treat civilians. If you think that after the talk you will be able to sit quietly at home, you are deeply mistaken." Zelimkhan Istamulov, head of the Staropromyslovsky district added: "You live on my territory. If you think that from this moment you will be able to live free, to walk around, it is not true."
