Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who is pro-Moscow, has strongly denied any connection to the Boston bombings, so much so that in a statement to the press on Friday he said the problem with the brothers is a result of what they learned in the United States.

The Tsarnaev brothers allegedly carried out their terror because of “their education, not ours,” clearly referring to the United States.

“They (the brothers) grew up and studied in the United States and their attitudes and beliefs were formed there,” Kadyrov said, according to Reuters. “Any attempt to make a connection between Chechnya and the Tsarnaevs is in vain.”
