Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has lashed out at former oil tycoon and vocal critic of the current Russian government Mikhail Khodorkovsky for addressing the media community with a call to publish more cartoons following the terrorist attack in France.

"After the bloody crime in Paris he must have imagined that he is more French than the president of France or the prime minister of that country. At a time when the French authorities are busy with the investigation and with taking measures that would prevent a further surge of tensions, Khodorkovsky has urged all media to follow in the footsteps of the Paris magazine and to go on publishing caricatures," Kadyrov says on his Instagram.

He says that by making such calls Khodorkovsky has positioned himself as "an enemy of all Muslims of the world".

"This means that he is my personal enemy, too," Kadyrov said.
