Today, we turn over the final page of the 2015 calendar before meeting the year 2016.
The last year has been an eventful year. This year, like in all previous ones, citizens of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, both on the territory of their occupied country and beyond, have made every effort to hasten the day of de-occupation of our homeland and restore the state.
Today every citizen of Chechnya can only imagine what the year 2016 has in store for them. It is your thoughts and intentions that not only build your future, but also that of your children. Speaking to you today, I urge you to stay united as one. The Government of the Chechen Republic, headed by Akhmed Zakayev continues to protect interests of our citizens at every stage and in all directions. It is responsible for everything and all the political processes that will provide a secure future of citizens of the Chechen state and prosperity of our country, on condition that we maintain the unity with restraint and patience, enabling our management to make decisions and take the responsibility which it has under the Constitution of the Chechen Republic. Every year we get closer and closer to our goal, despite the fact that Russian occupants continue their "terroristic policy" against political leaders of Chechnya. That is so because their intense activity inhibits Russian intelligence services to fool and confuse the citizens of the occupied Chechen Republic.
I urge you not to be distracted by all sorts of provocateurs masquerading as religious, military and political activists. They try to start a new large-scale war in occupied Chechnya based on the plan of the Kremlin. Listen and read only the official sources of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, because only these allow making inquiries about everything and all the processes that have taken place and will take place in the future.
Remember that everything in the world is in "the hands" of our God and ours. As our thoughts are connected to our words and our words to our deeds, it is reasonable to think only good, to talk about good things, do only good deeds that will have a future and bring warmth to you and your loved ones.
May your new year be filled with peace and understanding. So that all the Russian invaders go home in in 2016, so that the Chechen families who have been forced to leave the occupied Chechen Republic because of the genocidal policy of Russia be able to return to their towns and villages and continue to live in the land God has given to them.
Peace, health and prosperity to all, regardless of their religion, skin colour, eye shape and nationality!
Minister of Economy and Finances of the Chechen Republic
