The leader of Russia's North Caucasus Republic of Chechnya promised
The leader of Russia's North Caucasus Republic of Chechnya promised on Sunday to make the republic prosperous in 10 years and resign by that time.

"I still need to solve several tasks before everything comes to normal and then I'll engage in something else... I am still young, I want to live, see the world and devote time to myself and my family," Ramzan Kadyrov said in an interview with the Austrian newspaper Die Presse.

Kadyrov, son of late Chechen president Akhmad Kadyrov, assassinated in May 2004 by insurgents loyal to the late militant leader, Shamil Basayev, was appointed president of Chechnya by Moscow in early 2007.

Under the rule of the 32-year-old Chechen leader, the republic has seen a decrease in militant activity. In April, the Russian authorities decided to end the counter-terrorist operation in Chechnya that had fought two separatist wars against Russia.

Kadyrov has been accused by his critics of involvement in human rights abuses, a charge that he denies.
