Chechnya's President Ramzan Kadyrov has declared support for Russia and ordered the creation of a special military regiment from his country's armed forces. He said Chechnya is willing to defend Russia and its interests from Western "aggression."

Mr Kadyrov said that for 15 years, Russian President Vladimir Putin has helped his people. In a speech in Grozny, the Chechnyan leader has asked Mr Putin to consider his offer of a special regiment to "defend Russia, its stability and borders," Channel News Asia reported.

The Putin supporter declared Chechnya can serve as Mr Putin's infantry and he was willing to let the world know that. Mr Kadyrov made the announcement of support after proposing that the Chechen army recruits may serve in the Russian naval base in Sevastopol on the Crimean peninsula.

Chechnya's pledge of support comes amid Russia's isolation from the world as the West imposes more sanctions over the Ukraine crisis. The country is currently suffering from falling oil prices and a declining local currency because of the economic sanctions. Russia has been accused of supporting pro-separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Russia has been beefing up its defences with Mr Putin signing the revised version of the country's military doctrine. The new changes promote the use of Russia's conventional weapons as part of its defences against major threats to security.

Among to the new threats identified by planners are the armed conflict in Ukraine and the crisis in the Middle East. BBC News reported that Russian forces are believed to be conducting a covert operation in eastern Ukraine. The alleged intervention and the annexation of Crimea had prompted the U.S. and the EU to apply sanctions.

Meanwhile, Konstantin Sivkov, President of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, believes that the ultimate goal of the U.S. is to "destroy Russia." In an interview with Pravda.Ru, Sivkov said the U.S. is already considering plans to neutralise Russia's nuclear potential with the first plan meant to strike a blow that would "behead" the country. The next U.S. plan would be to destroy it.

Sivkov accused American politicians of committing several crimes including the deaths of 1,200,000 people in Iraq. He believes the American elite will not be held accountable for its actions unless military forces are destroyed. He predicted that U.S. society will decline some day and reminded everyone that it was the West who started the first cold war.

Sivkov told Pravda that the reports of the U.S. reportedly preparing for a serious war against Russia using cruise missiles could be "absolutely realizable." He said that the U.S. had launched a thousand missiles against military conflicts in Yugoslavia and Iraq.

He then went on to predict how the U.S. could neutralise Russia's nuclear potential. The U.S. could destroy Russia's command centres first since it is there were orders come out. Another way would be to destroy the missile launchers so the military would be incapacitated.

He said Russia is entering a "catastrophic situation" and extraordinary measures should be taken. Sivkov warned that if caution is not taken, Russia will be defeated quickly. He believes the only thing holding back a Western attack is the country's nuclear capability.
