Heidar Jemal, the chairman of the Islamic Committee of Russia, said Russian president Vladimir Putin is being drawn into a conflict in Abkhazia and the annexation of Crimea by Russia would lead to serious consequences.

Heidar Jemal, a prominent Muslim leader and thinker in Russia, said the recent protests in Abkhazia occured after Russian former deputy prime minister Vladislav Surkov's Abkhazia visit.

Jemal reminded that Surkov had visited Ukraine before the ongoing crisis and said the uproar in eastern Ukraine was sparked after his trip.

He thinks that the political unrest in Abkhazia was planned by liberals sitting in the Kremlin and said, "We need to know what's going on in Abkhazia. Whose game is it? How are E.U. and U.S. effective there? It is fact that some people close to Putin move against him with the E.U. and U.S."

Jemal added that a small group of oligarchs only act as if they are liberal. He said these fake liberal politicians might think about overthrowing Putin with the help of their Western allies.

Heidar Jemal said, "No one can be a minister without being dependent on any power, no matter where it is in the world. This situation is also the case whether it be in Russia or in Nigeria. The president may sometimes be on one side, while the government may be on the counter side. Then it is time to start political power struggles."
