Ramzan Kadyrov is the leader of Chechnya. He is a Putin proxy that has been in charge of the Russian republic since 2007. Recent reports have alleged that Kadyrov is systematically identifying and persecuting homosexual Chechen citizens. Many have fled the country in fear and have given interviews detailing his plans to kidnap, torture, and kill gay people. Despite the dark revelations, Kadyrov has continued to maintain an upbeat profile on Instagram, where he is a prolific user. Post by post, Kadyrov has used the social media platform to carefully craft a public image that distracts from his sinister behavior. Online he tends to post pictures of animals, selfies with friends, sports clips, and glamorous footage of Grozny, the capital of Chechnya. On the other hand, he also features imagery that hints at the darker aspects of his leadership. Kadyrov has a personal militia, called the “Kadyrovtsy”, and in various posts they can be seen shooting guns, performing training exercises, and practicing combat tactics. In doing so, he implies a clear threat to anyone who chooses to cross the Chechen leader. Two other common subjects are his religious faith and Vladimir Putin. Kadyrov is a devout Muslim and he leverages his faith to promote a strict interpretation of Islam: one that limits the role of women and endorses cruel punishment. He is also a fervent supporter of Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia. By featuring Putin in his posts, Kadyrov makes his deference to the Russian leader explicit. That is because Putin helped bring Kadyrov to power and affirms the authority of his Chechen subordinate. As long as Kadyrov maintains stability in the North Caucasus, Putin will continue to protect Kadyrov. That being said, if anyone is going to hold Kadyrov responsible for the troubling accusations about gay persecution, it will be Vladimir Putin. The more the world takes notice, the more Putin will have to, as well.

  1. Only the Judeo-Christian tradition teaches love and respect for all people–including homosexuals. We all have sins to renounce. Combating evil with evil is always bad.

  2. Angela Merkel welcomes genocidal terrorists supremacist imperialists who murder wantonly for Allah and create no go zones, but is worried about the brutal treatment of homosexuals in Chechnya. Go figure..

  3. what a conspiracy by VOX Love ❤️ and respect to president Ramazan
    I'm sure there he is no Homophobic since millions of gay tourists go there but I'm sure almost all U.S presidents + European presidents are Islamophobic

  4. Love you Chechnya you are Russia to man so that we love you so much and no more fights we are brothers

  5. The Caucasus is Greek territory, the name and history confirms it. The monkeys living there today are the ones who ran out of Alexander the Great to save themselves then, cowards and scared people who have colonies in the mountains and are hiding the descendants of these people who ran out of battle, cowards

  6. kadyrov is a humiliation to all chechens that will be remembered as such for hundreds of years. the level of tyranny and injustice they have gotten comfortable with will hit them back and their children for many generations.

  7. Genocide of Muslims in Burma, Palestine, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.. why don't you make documentaries about the genocide occuring in Muslim Countries

  8. PLZ do a video on trump Brutal Tyrant, And Obama the brutal tyrant that killed tens of thousands of innocent victims you only make videos on the non western supported side and even a man who hasnt killed one singel human or not a single fly for that matter
    you can fool your self but dont even think about that you can fool the public

  9. Everybody has a good side, and a bad side. It's the media's choice to portray the side of the person it's being paid for

  10. am from russia and what has been said in the video is surprisingly accurate
    about kadyrov – putin relations at least

  11. that is false reporting about a great leader and the gay man thats fake made up, wish all leaders follow his foot steps.

  12. If he was a true Chechen he would declare independence as the true leader dzhokar dudayev and aslan mashkadov did.
    If he continues to obey putin the muslim killer then he is a traitor no matter how much he claims to be introducing islam to occupiedchechnya.

  13. He is a trader covering himself with relegous touch as a camelian that is the most dangerous kind of enimies to ISLAM like his Demon father. He is part of the kafir .

  14. That's not Islamic agenda, that's brutality and oppression. Islam does not force anyone to do anything. And besides, we have seen in history what forcing people to do something can do.

  15. What about Israel killing Palestinians,
    Myanmar killing Rohingyas,
    India killing Kashmiris?
    These are the problems that need to be discussed first, yet no one talks about them and everyone tries not to talk about them. Why? Does it scare you to touch such a "touchy" subject?!

  16. To all Muslims in this comment section who think that this guy is "cool" or "great" or "good Muslim" killing gay people and subjugating women is not cool it is a disgrace and exactly what is giving Muslims a bad name in the west a good Muslim leader is Sadik Khan
