Overall DNA-Data Harvesting for Chechens to Help Search for Children Kidnapped by ISIS

The head of the Chechen Republic has ordered an “overall DNA harvesting” to help identify and retrieve Russian children who had been taken to terrorist-control territories in the Middle East.
“We are now actively working to establish the fates of Russian citizens – women and children – who have ended up in Iraq and Syria, and help them to return. At present, in order secure the return to Russia of children who were born in Middle Eastern countries, I have ordered a collective gathering of DNA test material,” Ramzan Kadyrov wrote in his latest post on popular Russian social network, Vkontakte.
